A Bee In Purple Flowers

I haven't been stung by a bee in years. I remember when I was little I used to get stung at least once a summer. One year I was stung 3 times in one day! It's likely that back then I just used to be in their territory more often. I'd run around the yard like a maniac, and I wouldn't be thinking about bees until I felt the pain of a stinger.

Now I look forward to seeing bees. I always try to photograph them, because they're a beautiful challenge. I've been interested in insects my whole life, and bees are especially cool.

What do you think of insects? Do they freak you out? Has your relationship with them changed as you've gotten older?

I took the photo on Saturday, in Harvard, MA. Happy second day of summer!

Having had my share of bee stings, all I can say is:Pollinate then "Buzz Off", "Bee-Gone"
