Who says. It may or not be a bee in reality. Be it might or might not a bee be in virtuality. Be it may or be it might, a bee for the evening and every night. Be it thus or be it so, a bee for the season a bee for the reason and a bee to and fro. And Jason doesn't care for your lip sir.

Correct! It's a hoverfly, which someone visiting here (was it Zach Weiss?) told me eat aphids. The Wikipedia page said their larvae are insectivores though the adults eat pollen and nectar. Very cool!

Husky gaurdian dog. She protects Noah's chickens. We just got 23 dozen from him. That's one week of his production and about one week of our use.

She is a sweet heart and beautiful especially the "headdress" on her back.
