Maybe this is a leaf cutter bee known as Megachile Pugnata? Any bee people out there know? I photographed it out in a sunflower field. I believe they only feed their offspring pollen from perennial sunflowers. So this would make sense. It was so still for a very long time. I thought it might be dead. But low and behold it slowly began to move and then flew away after a while. #bees #leafcutterbee #megachile #insects #insectsofinstagram #sunflower #wendysavagestudios #dorotheadixpark #raleigh #bugs #savethebees #beesofinstagram #macro_brilliance

In a field of sunflowers, she outshines them all ๐ŸŒป @dixpark @jhchard #sunflowers

Got to play around with the #nikon #d850 for a few days. Loved the iq of the live view and the silent shutter as well as a few other minor features that make shooting easier. Now if Nikon would update the D750 sensor with those features! Thereโ€™s a lot going on in the night sky right now. 3rd pic is conjunction of Venus and the Moon. 4th is Mars, Saturn, and Jupiter surrounding a light polluted Milky Way. #lakecrabtree #jordanlakenc #dorotheadixpark #sunflower #sunflowerfield #sunset #nightsky #nightscape #milkyway #milkywaychasers #planet

I didnโ€™t see the sunflowers until they were a little past their prime, but there were still some vibrant ones left. The bees didnโ€™t seem to mind. ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ . . . . #sunflowerfield #sunset #dorotheadixpark #dixpark #dixparkraleigh #cityofraleigh #raleighmagazine #visitraleigh #downtownraleigh #visitnc #scenicnc #northcarolinaoutdoors #ncoutdoors #naturalnorthcarolina
