Bee Wings Captured

The other day we were all sitting outside enjoying the beautiful day when I kept seeing this bumble bee hovering by the fence. This went on for awhile. He would zip around, come back, and then hover more. I went in to get my camera, figuring by the time I went back out he would have zipped away.
He was still showing off!

 Well..Hello there!

 Another thing I wasn't trying to capture his wings, I didn't realize I did until I uploaded my images, I was so excited!
