Bees Photo Series

May 29, 2008

The honeysuckle is starting to bloom and smells divine. The bees have pollen dusted all over them. This scent carries me back to my childhood when I used to suck the little beads of nectar out of the blossoms. I took these photos today. The last one is of a wild strawberry.

    How wonderful! My husband’s dad (also known as my Father In Law) raises bees. They scare the heck out of me, but I still love to see them scurry about collecting nectar. And I just love the smell of honeysuckle. My parents have it pretty much taking over their woods.
    WOnderful pictures!

    You’re either very brave to be that close to the bees or you have a very long lens LOL
    I do love your pictures. What kind of camera do you have?

    Jill, honeysuckle might be my favorite smell. Thanks for coming over to visit my blog.

    Mere, thank you for the award. Bees are neat to watch. I only remember one sting in my life; it was on the bottom of my foot. 😦

    Chris, I was really really close to them. I just put the camera right on top of them because they were so busy pollinating that they didn’t care about me. Our camera is a PowerShot SD550. Thank you for the compliment!

    Beautiful photographs! I love macro shots… haven’t quite figured out how to do ’em so that they turn out as great as yours – but I’m working on it! Well done! 😀

    As always, wonderful hi-res shots of nature’s wonders. I am gonna miss those little yellow pointy-tailed fellas. Thanks to HAARP, the deployment of global electromagnetic climate control and weapons systems, and excessive cell phone use, their little navigation systems have been compromised.

    Never fear, Johnny… we’re sure to allow our hatred to annihilate humanity long before our technology can wipe out the entire bee population. Unfortunately, it’s most likely only the killer bees will be left, so those other life forms better watch out!

    Lofter, thank you. It’s fun to see how the photos turn out; just hit or miss at this stage.

    Johnny, thank you. Where can I learn more about HAARP? Your comments are so informative and provocative.

    That is a link to an informative article on HAARP. You could spend a week reading the other articles on mind control forums. There are tons of declassified docs on MKULTRA, government mind control programs, and testimonials of victims who have been targeted with low frequency attacks, chip implants, and nastier affairs. Not for the faint of heart.

    Definitely not for the faint of heart… but, unfortunately, mostly based in truth. My former spouse and I spent a solid couple of years investigating some of the more infamous conspiracy theories and found that, while many are pure baloney, many others are not… HAARP is definitely among those that is absolutely based in truth. (And our government is not the only one who has it, either.) Freaky stuff.
