Took these shots at Houghton’s Pond, Milton MA. These guys were taking a dip and cleaning themselves but it kind of looked like they are on a swimming race.
One of the things that fascinate me during the spring and summer time is how much work some of these animals do to gather food to keep them going during the winter. I read somewhere that a honeybee has to visit approximately 2 million flowers to gather just 1 pound of honey. They are just always on the go and no time to relax. It is just mind boggling. All the more reason why I never feel enough of the honey bee pictures.
