Artist's Description

I nearly walked INTO these! My friend and I got out of my van on Main St, Stuttgart, Ark USA, to go shopping. There are young trees along the curb, I started to duck under them and my friend yelled out BEES!!!! I hit the dirt. Crawled away on my hands and knees. Never saw them, glad she did!…(ON Main St on a Saturday afternoon, I’m crawling!.. LOL) I was about 4 ft from walking face into these. They were hidden. I’m deathly allergic to and terrified of these, and did NOT have my EPPIE pen!!! We retreated to the van. I drove up next to them parallel a few minutes later and took a few shots thru the window. Then I rolled it down a few inches for this shot. I’m surprised my friends screaming didn’t disturb them. She said “Is there ANYTHING you wouldn’t do for a photo??!!” ..“No, I said…” Me, and the police dept, tried for 2 hrs to find a home for them, we were afraid a child would throw a rock at them or an adult spray them. They were protecting their queen, and would have killed anyone foolish enough to do so. I finally called Delta Rivers Nature Center in Pine Bluff, Ark, and they found someone. The police patrolled them, until the beekeeper and ME arrived. I offered to help, do NOT know what possessed me to do this. (Well, except the photo op…) They are endangered and protected. Plus a creature of nature, I felt strongly about their rescue….Taken with a SanyoVPC-E2100.
