I've been trying to finesse my picture taking and when I found the blueberry bush to be in bloom and full of bees of varying sizes I decided to try to get some nice photos.
This first one is of something that isn't a bee, but I don't know what it is. The wings were moving so fast you couldn't really see them with the naked eye, so the picture is especially nice.
Another one of the strange bug
I've been trying to attract Mason bees to the garden, which is a variety of bee that is native to North America. They are smaller than European honey bees and aren't susceptible to the colony collapse disorder. I think this may be one of them.
