This is one little guy that is doing his business and pays no attention to who is around (with a camera) to capture him in action!!! I even talk to the bees…never in my life have I ever been stung by a bee!!! While my friends scream and run, I stand still and talk to the bees LOL :o)

*Hymenoptera* is one of the largest orders of insects, comprising the sawflies, wasps, bees and ants. There are over 130,000 recognized species, with many more remaining to be described. The name refers to the heavy wings of the insects, and is derived from the Ancient Greek?µ (hymen): membrane and pte? (pteron): wing. The hindwings are connected to the forewings by a series of hooks called hamuli.
Females typically have a special ovipositor for inserting eggs into hosts or otherwise inaccessible places. The ovipositor is often modified into astinger. The young develop through complete metamorphosis — that is, they have a worm-like larval stage and an inactive pupal stage before they mature.
