the birds ...a bee ...and other critters

Over the last 2 years I have taken quite a fair amount of nature photos; the subjects are mostly birds, flowers, and various woodland critters. Recently I braved 6 bumblebees to get a decent shot of at least one of them. Needless to say I didn't hang around too long, and although I didn't get any great shots of their pollen-covered legs like I initially wanted, I did get  a shot that still feels too close for comfort..
