Backyard Entomology

While we were outside doing some yard work last weekend, I decided to take some pictures of the bees feasting on the lamb's ear. Unfortunately, I have to get pretty close to use the macro lens (I didn't use the telephoto like I said last time). I managed to get through it unscathed (unstung) and even got some good pictures out of it.

I found the goldbug!
No, wait. It's just a fly.

I also saw a big spider, but I was too busy beating it with a stick to take any pictures. I don't like spiders. I've only taken one picture of a spider. We ran into it while walking the dog, and that time I DID use my telephoto lens because I didn't want to get anywhere near it. The scariest picture I've taken.
