Weekly Photo Challenge – Shiny Bumble Bees

My latest distraction was from the new visitors in my garden – the bumble bees. One morning, my husband told me that there were bumble bees hovering over the lavender plant. I was so excited that I dropped whatever I was doing, grabbed the camera to go outside. I approached them quietly because I didn’t want to scare them away. I finally got close enough to see where they were going. But as soon I zoomed in the camera, they flew to another flower. I tried two mornings without success. The third morning gave me a better chance. They didn’t only hovering over the lavenders; they went over to the iceberg roses and stopped at each rose for a few second. It was long enough for me to take a few satisfying photos.
