16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Girls of Summer

While walking down the streets of Ruidoso we found some local attractions. Many bees were hard at work extracting nectar and pollinating along the way. I had to wait on some shots until the bee exited the tubular petals. Check out her barely there, lovely translucent wings. Beautiful and necessary are the girls of Summer.
