Honeymoon!

Two little Red Mason Bees, just outside my front door. The males wait outside the nest tubes and pounce on any females that emerge!

The song says bees do it. I guess that's true. Great details captured.

Excellent shot Karen. Obviously the male bees are not subject to the Sexual Offences act 1980 as amended! David

Lovely shots.
I can't get over how good the macro shots can be (bee?) on these cameras.

Not a moment many of us will ever have the chance to shoot and you have done it extremely well. Very sharp detail - even the pollen!

Thank you Dora - we've had bee nests outside our front door for years now. These mason bees are solitary and very docile (the only time they'd sting is if you physically grabbed/squeezed them), so they cause no problems. It's fascinating to watch them! Grin
Excellent image and title Karen.
