Weekly Photo Challenge: Dinnertime

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dinnertime

One evening, right around when I should have been fixing dinner, I couldn’t go inside. I was stuck on the deck, captivated by all the different kinds of bees flying through a patch of scilla looking for their own dinner.honey bee flying

The girls and I laid on our bellies and watched honey bees, bumble bees, mason bees and assorted flies until our own dinner was severely delayed.honey bee on scilla

We couldn’t tear ourselves away from the show until I discovered how to use the time lapse feature on my camera, then to keep our shadows out of the picture, we walked away.

When we returned, ten minutes later, dinnertime for the bees seemed to be over and we finally headed inside to start on our own.
