Drunk Bumblebee Haikus and Bee Macro Photography
I feel so blessed to get these Bumblebee photos!
Haiku | Bee Macro Photography
When I saw this very big and beautiful Bumblebee on the Autumn Joy Sedum, I stopped to practice insect macro photography. She did not even bat an eyelash and went on her day. I decided to watch her for a moment or two and I am glad I did, and I even wrote a bumble-ing Bumblebee haiku.
I start smiling each time I look at these photos. I think you will smile too.
At times, I notice that many insects, including bees seem to become a bit sedated as they feast on the sweet nectar. The plants have a distinctive pungent fragrance that may add to the effect. It is fascinating to watch different species of insects flocking to the plants as soon as they first start blooming.
At first the insects are busy moving about the pink flowers, but the longer they drink nectar, the slower they move and sometimes even get a bit dazed as they will stay in one spot for an extended period of time. Maybe they take a nap. I have checked for signs of life a few times.
A Temulent Bumblebee Story
She apparently had been on the Sedum for a while and may have gotten a little tipsy. I watched as she tumbled onto her side.
I could imagine how embarrassed she must have been. So, as she used her front leg to right herself, I just pretended she was being friendly and waving at me.

The Wave Of A Bumble Bee
It was all I could do to resist trying to help this little lady in her distress. I decided to stay until she righted herself and I kept on waving back and smiling.
It is hard not to smile when looking at the armpit of a Bumblebee, its the cutest!
Here you can see that the Bumblebee had good momentum going for her and sure enough she was on the way to success. I was holding my breath with a hopeful heart.

All’s well that ends well!
Psst! Got a Second?
Do you write haiku?
Macro Photography of The End
Nature Photo Shoot
Here she is back on all her feet and she walked away with all the dignity she could muster as though nothing had happened.
I am pretty sure I heard a sigh of relief.
Note: She did not fill up her pollen baskets. This was a free time party!
