So cool! Our blackberries are just starting to bud around here. Should have open blooms in the next few days (weather permitting). There is a apple or cherry tree just down the road from me. I was walking past it last week and notices a LOT of bees in the trees. I could not help but think "those are my bees in that tree".
Bees are so interesting!

The beek club keeps their hives about half a block from where I have my girls so I find myself wondering if the bee I'm looking at is one of mine or from the club hives.

Took some more pic with my cell phone cam of the girls working some flowers on the side of the road -
They are real fast and my cam is not very good, this is the best shot I could get - LOL



They were also on the tiny flowers on this vine - I would never of known that these were good for bees if I hadn't seen it for myself (look carefully there is a bee in this pic)



One thing I did notice is that these bees look so very small when my girls at the hive are really big so maybe they are not my bees at all...?

Nice.
It really looks like a focus problem. Top picture is focased on the bottom of the picture. Can you tell the camera where to focus like you can on an Iphone? Even still with auto focus, it is hard to do with the bees constantly moving.

Lovely little buggies! It looks like you are too close to the subject to get it in focus. You generally need a special (read:expensive) lens to get close ups of tiny things like bees. Try standing a bit further away and taking a wider shot, then cropping it after the fact. It won't be super high quality, but at least your girls will be in focus.
