The way last Friday’s high school district cross-country meet was set up, it was easiest to take photos at the start and the finish. But that meant there was a boatload of time in between waiting for runners.
At first I was bored at this local park. But then I spied these pretty purple flowers nearby, and I went over to investigate.
I was glad I did! When I zoomed in with my Nikon 70-200mm lens, I could see a bee frolicking among the flowers.
Thankfully, because of the zoom, I could get up close and personal with the insect without fearing a meeting with his stinger. Which I did fear a lot.
The bee really put on a show for me and made the time fly by.
No butts about it!
