A tiny slice of nature

A bee checking out some flowers at Buck's Run today.

(More specifically, according to my Audubon's, the above insect is a wasp, possibly a Sandhills Hornet, which can "sting viciously" if disturbed, according to my Audubon's guide. Not to get picky, of course, since I don't know the difference a cow and a steer, or straw and hay -- E.B.)

ah yes, bees, wasps... one of these days I need to do a project with a real entomologist. He/she'd learn me good.
