Black Bee


It has been a while since I've taken any pictures of bugs.  This is from May of 2009.  I never got around to posting it.  If you click on the pictures, you can really see the details.

Two things I found out while searching for the identity of this creature:

1.  There's a website where you can post pictures of bugs and people will try to identify them for you.  I am so excited by this!!!!  www.bugguide.net

2.  Black Bee is a position in the Karma Sutra.  I'll leave it to you to find out more about that if you are interested.

I, too, am fascinated by bugs. What beautiful pictures of a beautiful tiny animal. And that link to the bug site is wonderful. I often see creatures which I have no idea what they are and WANT TO KNOW!

Ooooh. I've never seen one of these. What amazing wings! We get some interesting back yard bugs, so I'm glad to have the bug site link too. As a general rule I don't use "lol," but I'm making an exception to say lol to factoid #2.

Me too, LOL!

Is it dead in the last photo?

Cool wings.
