A bee that fell in the birdbath while drinking, he eventually got out.


bee, water bath, drowning bee

Got the bug!
Am I obsessive?
Camera shutter worn out!
Computer suffering overload!
Did I take another 500 photos today?
Back up falling behind? :(
Can’t decide what to upload?
Yes that’s me!

    Superbly captured Gabe.

  • Thank you Julie! I was just lucky there was a leaf in the water, the other shots you can’t see the ripples.

    Nice find & capture my friend. Cooling off Ha ! Hugs

  • Hello there Mr Tom! Yes I don’t know if you heard but we have been experiencing extreme weather here. We got to 44 degrees and the poor bees are stressed, I’ve been topping up the birdbath for them as thousands and thousands come all day long.

    Wonderful capture. I’m glad he got out.

  • Thank you Bunny! xx Oh yes, I couldnt’ let any bees drown, I love them. They are welcome in my garden and I had to fill this birdbath up over the week several times as there were thousands relying on it. We got to 44 degrees which was just like sticking your head in the fan forced oven. Pretty unreal but scary at the same time. What happening to our planet?

    You’re the bees knees Gabe – fantastic capture

  • Hehehe! I was only lucky there was a fallen leaf in the birdbath, I took some other shots just over the water and they ended up black with no ripples.
