Longhorn Coming Right at You

This one tickled me. Love what I take to be the expression on this face (just a face – standard bee expression – but give me some license here). This is a great native longhorn with a fantastic look at the detail in her eye. These bees seem to love both the sunflowers and squash plants. And, if you didn’t know, squash is native to North America (cucumbers, melons, etc., too). So these little ones have been at it in this hemisphere for who knows how long. One of my favorite bees to shoot when they (and the sunflowers) show up.
