That is really funny Ken Laughing You can tell the southern folks like to take things real slow. How do you get those nice dark backgrounds? Great picture.

Small aperature and flash seems to be it there Doug. Yeah some folks down around these parts like to take things slow. Someone once told me though, two of the most important things one can buy, is a comfortable pair of shoes and a good firm bed. Wink

Thanks Doug Very Happy

Do you think they sometimes fall off in the night, wake up on the ground and think "uh what, where am i?"

You know I pulled one of these bee's from its "perch" and surprisingly they are quite firmly attached. However, I can imagine the feeling if one were to fall off and rudely awakened by it. Laughing

A cure for snoring, Harold Think Well I don't know if I do it frequently but I have awakened myself doing so on seldom occasion. However, I don't think hanging from one of the trees in the yard by my mouthparts would be the cure but it might draw a sizeable crowd of on lookers. Laughing

Thanks laruiek, thanks Harold Very Happy

Ken - you might even end up with your photo on a photography forum!

You know...you're right there Graham, it just might. That would make me a bit of a celebrity, wouldn't it? Think Laughing

Perhaps the same as birds, when they crouch down to sleep I read their muscles or tendons automatically lock their grip on the perch and until they wake up and stand up again their feet will not release.
