The Colony

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Blake Collier

I found these bees nesting inside a huge cactus flower. At first glance they were completely frozen. I thought they had been killed with wasp spray, Abut after a few minutes their eyes turned black and they began moving around. Fascinated with their movements I captured this image free hand. there has been no tamperings to this photo. I love the bee on top that appears to be staring directly at the camera.

Location: San Marcus, Texas
