This was an especially large bumblebee on partridge pea. A queen? I have no idea. She was shy and didn't show me her face.

Of course, my poor camera has gotten gritty, pollinated, rained on a bit, but like the proverbial Timex, it keeps on ticking.

Thanks, turtle! Nice to have a name with my butterfly. I really do need to learn more of them.

Smile...glad your camera doesn't let a little grit and pollen get in the way.

I've never heard of a camera harness.
Do they slow your reaction time down any un-clicking things or do they stretch when you want a quick shot of something?
