Dangerous Wildlife Photography August 24, 2016Posted by lauraw in News.
Here in the ferocious wilds that the natives call ‘Kh-net-i’cut,’ (which loosely translates to ‘HOW much?!’) there are luxurious meads teeming with all manner of creatures, from the lowliest insects, to the much, much highliester insects.
Since my photographer was eaten by a dragon last week, it falls to me to train my ignorant lens on some of the amazing organisms inhabiting this amazing place.
Oh, okay, so; I had an amazing insect in the frame but it flitted away just before the damned camera on my phone finally snapped the shutter. I have a LOT of pictures just like this. Tons. Sorry.
I was pretty excited about this one, but it turned out to be a housefly, just like the ones we have back home. I am SO sorry. Moving on.
I got his butt! I got his butt! So close. That was so close to being an actual picture of a thing. I’m getting really good at this!
Well! Well, well, now! There it is. A little blurry, but I think you can verify the veracity with which this thing represents itself. That, there, is a Black Bee With Yellow Stripes. I just named it. That’s it’s name because I say so. This is awesome.
I’m gonna do it again.
Another black bee with yellow stripes, but not THE Black Bee With Yellow Stripes. Wow, I say! Naming animals can be quite the pickle!
I dub thee, ‘Mini-Bee.’
Say, do you know what happens when someone stands next to a tall plant teeming with bees on a sunny day? The bees are always flying quickly and they bump into someone. Quite a lot. And sometimes they land on someone, too. Just to take a little break! And then they have a bit of a relaxed little walkabout on someone, while someone stops breathing and poops their pants.
