    Beautiful bees, lighting is sweet! Didn’t know they traveled in packs.

    Reminds me of the flying monkeys in the Wizard of Oz.

      Thanks Diane. No packs, but they are social and I’m near a hive.

    This seriously is the most beautiful insect photo I’ve seen in a very long while. Uncomplicated, simple, yet gorgeous and full of life. 😉
