I love watching bumble bees. Nice way to unwind.

The purposeful rose first seduces then nourishes.

You're playing with fire, Ann, getting so close to those terrorists.

Some of ricpic's best work yet.

Rape! Get this thing OFF me!

Read in a book American indians followed bees to their hive and got their honey. I thought, "That's BS. How can you follow a bee?" Then, I was watching bees drink water from a backyard pond where the flat rocks provided a perfect landing spot leading gently into the water like a boat launch. The bees had a regular flight pattern established, straight up to the height of telephone wires, then straight across. Buzzbuzzbuzz. Zing. One after another in regular succession followed that exact same route. Then I thought, "Oh, so that's how the indians did it. They went to someone's backyard pond and observed them all doing the exact same thing." Brilliant!

A rose is not Lenin, "Who Whom?"
Her demo is always Zoom Zoom!
