Photo Frustration

I took my son to a savannah restoration last Saturday.  It is owned by Grinnell College and is called Conard Environmental Restoration Area, or CERA.  I was hoping to find some butterflies or other things to photograph.

I found no butterflies.  There weren’t really many flowers blooming, either other than dandelions.  I did find some other insects, though.

I think this is a Halictidae bee.

I was hoping to get a better view of this small bee–she mostly kept her head down in the flower.  The bee would suddenly fly off, and return to the same flower.  I snapped several photos of the bee taking off, hoping to get a shot of the head.

She was too fast for me.
