A fat furry bumblebee and a moth in the middle of a large sunflower.


Sunflower in My Yard #2

This sunflower is one of two that spouted up by my driveway earlier this summer. The flowers finally opened up at the end of September, and quickly became popular with the local insects.

When I was getting ready to photograph the sunflower, the bumblebee was by herself in the flower, near the right side of the sunflower's center. The moth was outside the flower on one of the petals. The moth entered the flower by walking between two petals near the place where the bumblebee was working.

The moth walked up and SHOVED the bumblebee out of his way! The bee moved over and let the moth through. I don't think I'd mess with someone who has a stinger! The moth was very brave, or stupid. In any case, the bumblebee let him get away with it.

I have another photograph of the moth standing on one of the petals before he walked into the center of the sunflower.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
