Very Fresh Morning

I never failed to bring my camera bag when going hiking. Whenever I was soaked, it was soaked too.


It became the attention of a skipper moth many months ago, and it is an attraction to a bee now.


My sweat must have turned into nectar or alike through years of chemical process, which sounds ridiculous but is true at this moment in time. 


The bee is still sipping and that must taste good in the comfort of fresh sunny morning.

Great shots, Rainfield. The skipper moth is cool looking and the bee is just amazing. Glad the bee wasn't not tasting your skin, that would hurt. Have a happy weekend.

I guess this just shows what a sweet guy you are. The macros are fabulous.

betchai said...

hehehe, :-) am sure your sweat may have been turned to a nectar that they now pursue you, should i thank you for revealing the secret to get an up close shot with that eye?

Pat said...

What big eyes!

Angie said...

it sure is sipping the 'nectar' and taking its time, and enjoying it too.
It is obvious as you shot it brilliantly.
