I think that’s a couple, and they probably desire some privacy.

Daniel,

But there’s only two pairs of wings, not four!

Great photo!

I also have a question. As I take photos of honeybees on various plants, I am starting to photograph more native bees on flowers and wondered how to begin to learn what kind each one is. Are there any good native bee id resources out there?

JoAnne,

I think BugGuide.net is the best resource for i.d.

Dragonfly, I think.

That looks like a male Blue Dasher (Pachydiplax longipennis.) Beautiful job catching the wing detail. I love dragonflies!

Just wondering, do you carry your camera everywhere you go? That’s a crazy shot, can’t imagine he waited while you ran in to get your camera!?!? Love the photos and thx for all the info!

Kim,

Actually, he did wait while I got my camera. I was surprised too.
