15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Drink up ...Buzzzz!

I was walking to work, when I thought I saw a Hummingbird, I had never seen a Bumble Bee this big before, it flew onto these beautiful Blue flowers that had little cups! This huge Bee, would fly on to a flower and with its front (I will call them arms) grab, 1,2 sometimes 3 and 4 cups at a time, and shove its face into them, I was hilarious to see, in this picture she is deep face in, one cup!
