queen to be


it was a calm warm day, so the workers decided to release the queens and drones on the one flight of their lives. This queen to be hadn't quite mastered the art of using all four wings.

Amazing Photo - not just that one but all of them. I live in the Midlands so wild life not so easy to see although I try to encourage as much as I can in the garden

thanks for the compliments, they are always appreciated by Spot and his secretary. The archive is getting enormous so there must be a few good photos in it by now!

The wings are so iridescent! The bbq cover a nice contrast (certainly it could be claimed it was all staged to look just so!)

not staged, almost nothing is staged on this blog, it is Nature as we find her :-)

Of course, of course! Photographer's serendipity! :0)
