This is one of many photos I shot while working in Guerneville. I have several with bees on flowers but this was a one time chance. The Queen of a swarm looking for a home landed on a fellow Artist's pottery and there was plenty of time to get some good artful shots of the swarm. Someone called a bee keeper and with a little honey she made the queen move into her new home. I shot these closeups with a telephoto lens but later walked right up and took video with my smart phone.
