Fort Meade, Anne Arundrel County, Maryland, USA
May 24, 2008
there are a few of these flying around my garden. the neighbor kid kept saying they were bumble bees which they are clearly not. This one landed on my rose bush long enough for me to get a few shots of it. otherwise they seem fairly camera shy.
