A January Bee In D.C.

My contribution to Eileeninmd's Saturday's Critters #109. I can't remember ever seeing a bee buzzing around in D.C. in January:

Bold Nutkin takes a long look at Theda:

The birds in West Virginia are happy to see me:


UPDATE: I'm also contributing to Anni's I'd Rather B Birdin'. Most of the usual suspects showed up shortly after I put up the suet feeder...Chickadees, White-breasted Nutchatches, and Downy Woodpeckers. Missing in action so far are their feathered fellow travelers, the Tufted Titmice.

Mouse over pics for captions, and click them for larger versions.

It has a certain poetic ring to it: a bee in DC! i like it but it is unusual this time of year!

The Titmouse and the Chickadee---yay. They don't stay still long enough for me to get the shots I want.

I guess if the flowers are out in January, then a bee may ventrue out too? Beautiful birds, especially the downy woodpecker.

Lucky you! Bees or any other live little critter best think real hard before venturing around my neck of the woods right now. This is a killer of a frozen tundra in Minnesota (for the moment) we will see 30's again very soon. Next week they say, or could our weather-folks be buttering us up?!

I am hoping to visit D.C. soon - so save that green grass (and bee) for me.

It's taken a turn for the colder, I hope that bee finds a place to shelter.

Winter came late but it's about to make up for it.
