[carpenter bee in flight]

i had some fun trying to focus on this carpenter bee.. he'd hover for short spurts.. i must've spent 15 minutes standing by the side of the house with my finger on the rapid shoot button..

every time he'd land on the side of my house to continue digging his home, i'd spook him out to get more photos.. of course i should evacuate the borer bee from digging his home INTO MY HOME.. but when ya live in a log cabin, you're forever chasing critters away.. [woodpeckers eat holes in my house, to dig out these borer bees]

i shall try to encourage him to find a new home.. i DO offer bee boxes and i think i shall try a big block of wood with lots of pre-drilled holes, see i that appeals to them.. :)

WOW! Great stop-action shots! Admire your patience & tolerance for sharing your home with all Nature's critters!

Sorry if I'm so slow & erratic in my participation, here on PB, these days. I'm treaveling and can't always find the place & time to do any extensive comments, etc. I'll be back home in the first week of June, where I can be a little more regular.....sigh....
Cheers!

Fantastic captures! I love that you can see the detail in his eyes. I’ve always thought of macro as the kind of thing where you photograph a subject that sits still, but how cool that you’re capturing action with it!
