brazenly bumbling

Normally, bumble bees are very nice. They go about their business without bothering anyone, and they don't mind having their picture taken. This runcible fellow stuck his tongue out at me. (You may have to enlarge the pic to see it.) You know me though; I would never stoop to that level. :-P


I have had the most difficult time with comments lately. I don't know whether it is the server or my desktop. It does not seem to want to update the comment section in a timely manner, and there is a significant lag with email notification. Maybe if I open up the CPU and oil the hamster wheel...

you are invited to follow my blog

Its blogger Craver, Ive had lots of probs blogging comments.

Love mr Bumble.

Chris said...

Hi Very nice picture! Do not worry about the comments, it is a bug that sometime arrives. It is the same with blogger. Last night mine was blocked at 3 comments but I had indeed 12!!

Happyone :-) said...

That's an amazing shot!
I think we've all had problems with comments one time or another.

Craver Vii said...

Come on in, Steve. Have a seat and visit for a while. Perhaps after a time of social exchange, you might choose to follow me.

To me Imac, comment problems normally means "writer's block." The wheel is oiled and hamsters are fed. Everything is ready here, for whenever the Blogger situation is resolved. Maybe I should upgrade from an LP drive.

Oui, Chris. C'est la vie!

I would have been happier with a better depth of field Happyone. I wish I had braced better, but it was not possible at the time. I'm glad you liked the shot though. Bumblebees make entertaining models.

Gaelyn said...

Maybe that bee didn't want its picture taken, but you sure got a nice shot anyway.

I've read where several people aren't showing up on the comments. Must be a blogger problem, but wouldn't hurt to oil the wheel. ;)

Shammickite said...

I had the same problem with only 2 comments noted but open it up and there's 5.
Nice bee. Even if he is sticking his tongue out. Must do some research, do bees actually have tongues?

mommanator said...

*I had another blogger friend say the same thing so maybe the hampster wheel doesnt need oiling maybe blogger is messing?

Craver Vii said...

Things seem to be going better now, Gaelyn. I'm surprised that I did not see any notification from Blogger.

Normally Shammy, a bee has a proboscis. But not this one. This one is all attitude and tongue. ;-)

Mommanator, it would be nice to know what the buzz is with Blogger.

Bird Girl said...

I have NEVER seen a tongue on a bee! wow that is very cool, indeed! How long that thing is! You did a great job capturing this!

Craver: Cool shot of the spunky bee. It isn't a problem on your side my friend.

SAPhotographs (Joan) said...

So you never stoop to that level do you? Well try telling that to someone who does not know you very well and they might believe you, I for one know better!! LOL!!

A terrific shot Craver. You really did very well with this.

You are not the only one who has had problems with your comments. Seems like Blogger/Google is having a hard time with our processing.

lime said...

wow, you just never fail to impress me with your macro shots.

as for blogger....what a bugger.

Craver Vii said...

(whispering) Shhhh... it's not really a tongue; it's a proboscis. Yeah Bird Girl, I was amazed at how far that thing reaches.

Even if the problem was on my side Fishing Guy, I would never admit it. :-)

Spot-on diagnosis, Joan. But at least I was careful not to let anyone take a picture of me sticking my tongue out.

Things seem to be better now Lime, but the system had a case of the boogie woogie blues. I don't mean to complain. I am still grateful for what I have, and the price is right.

George said...

This is a great picture of the bee sticking out its tongue at you. I'm glad you captured it and shared it with us.
