Carpenter Queen on a Daylily

Was thinking this morning that I wished that I had more shots on the daylilies. So…of course…as I was looking at the globe thistles, I saw this huge queen carpenter bee bouncing from daylily to daylily. She didn’t even really stay long enough to alight on any one. Her strategy seemed to be to bounce around and get filthy. In some of the pics, it’s impossible to tell where the daylily’s anthers and the bee’s pollen sacs begin and end. Neat. Oh, and because it was so early in the morning (and overcast to boot), I was shooting at only about half as fast as I normally do. But I did get a few neat shots.
