"Fly Like an Eagle!" - Wings straight, not V-shaped like vultures.

Finally, for this quick return to nature, with birds often one finds bees. And so the question...
Two Bees or Not Two Bees?

It turns out that one is a honey bee, who carefully retreats from the predatory red & black mason wasp.

And that is a taste of 'the greatest hits' of my short visit to nature after a year in captivity myself... like so many of us. I've put this together quickly (with much more I'm still sifting through) to share with YOU, contact-less but with all the warmth of the swamp! Nature awaits. Meanwhile... #StaySafe
