I went for a walk this morning around Lake Haven. It is always a relaxing and often, an interesting experience. Birds, butterflies, dragonflies, monkeys sometimes…
Nature is all around.
I had my camera with me, as always.
I crossed the little bridge that spans the lotus pond on one side and the lake on the other.
At the end of the bridge, the path (jogging track) continues.
I walked on it.
Suddenly, I heard a loud buzzing. It came from a bee as big as my thumb.
It stood on the leaf of a plant beside the path.
Suddenly, it flew at me and went BUZZZZZZZZZ!!!
I had to duck!
Then, it returned to the same leaf.
Out came my camera, and I focussed it on the bee.
My camera went CLICK, and that set it off!
It came straight at me! It buzzed close to my head three times!
I understood the message, turned on my heels, and returned the way I had come.
Safely back at my desk, I scanned the photos taken that morning and saw this: a photo of the bee just as it took off and came after me like a fighter plane.
