Green Eyed Bee and The Honey bees Nature Photo

There was so many honeybees at the community garden I went to yesterday!

I was doing all I could to keep up with the honeybees and take other photographs.

This is on a squash flower and I gently pulled back on of the peddles to see what was inside.

Many bees were inside doing their thing!

The bee in question that got my attention had something on him (I thought at the time), so kept the lens pointed at it.

Only when I got home and started going through the photographs did I notice the bee did not have something on him, but had colored eyes.

I thought well, maybe the light was hitting the bees eye just right? Then I went to the next photograph, and the next.

I will post the photographs and let you see for yourself.

If you know what kind of species of bee this is, would you help this photographer out? I am just a tad bit curious now!!

Thank you to Renda Brooks over on my personal profile page over on facebook for helping me out with this possibility, click here . Several color differences , however the species might just be right? "The family Melittidae is a small bee family, with some 60 species in 4 genera"

Hike Into Lake Billy Chinook , Nature Photography

Hike Into Lake Billy Chinook , Nature Photography

Our life's here consists of several things, hiking is a huge part of our life's.

Guy calls these "walks", long walks!

I admit I am not the fastest walker. To busy looking around I guess?

We started out where Guy is looking over there.

We have a spot we park the truck, head out.

We do not like bringing the dogs on this hike. Just to many things can happen and they easily could go right off the cliff, so they stay at home with the son.

There is something to be said about being on top of the canyon!

You can see for miles for one thing!!

You do need to be mindful of where you are stepping. There are very old cracks in the rock that go a LONG way down!!

Some of the big rocks just balance on other rocks.

You can see Mt. Jefferson, Mt. Hood and three fingers Jack from this advantage point.

There is even a waterfall at this time of the year!

Then, what you do not see very often at all is airplanes flying into the canyon!!

This pilot looked to be alone in his aircraft! I mean we could see right into the cockpit from our advantage point!

This last airplane looked to have passengers with him. Something visitors can do while in our area, go on airplane rides!

On another note, I have put a Skype button right there if you would like to leave me a message, or I may just have Skype turned on?

I would also like to thank my siblings for telling our mother of my photography adventures, offering her the use of your computers and help her navigate to the web site! Now to just get her over here to the site and not be so intimidated by the computer!

Have a great day thank you for stopping in, Coralie AKA mrsroadrunner
