I know that wasps & yellowjackets can be beneficial in the fact they eat some bad bugs in the garden. I think they polinate some plants too. Great pictures!

Awesome shot! Here's a fitting qoute

Great pics! Like you, I love our native humblebees. I'm down with most of the wasps too, until it comes late summer and I have to fight the yellowjackets in the backyard for a bite of my hamburger. Well, like Gramps always said, "It's good to get a few bee stings every year. It prevents arthritis."

Gail

Your photos rock! Don't apologize they are able to sting and who wants to get too close!

Nicole Anderson

Are you a published photographer, famous as much as you are in the craft magazines? THIS is a wonderful pic! The first thing I noticed was the impeccable shadow, wowwwwwwserssssssssssss!

Simply stunning! If you aren't in photography mags, you should be!

(all is well with Isaac, thanks!!!)

I didn't before Wednesday, but now I do. An as of yet unnamed bee type creature who apparently likes to sting even when unprovoked.

Okay, maybe I'm not so innocent but I am truly clueless as to why the silly thing stung me.

They are welcome to visit my garden whenever they want, as long as they steer clear of my family members!

Kathleen

I agree Cinj. I hope your sting is healing ~ you really had quite a bad reaction.
