    What a great shot Steve, TOO CLOSE for me, they sting…Jules

  • You’d think I would have learned my lesson after running over a wasp nest with a lawnmower, but noooo, not me, got to be a thrillseeker! I’ll learn someday…until then, I’m going for the crazy shots! LOL! Thanks Jules!!!

  • I for sure didn’t want to upset this one, chased him for a while and when he finally found a spot to rest I had to act fast! Thanks Shirley!!!
