Sunday Stills ~ The Birds & the "Bees"

This week's Sunday Stills challenge: "This challenge is from WanderWoman who asked if we could do this challenge. It may be a bit difficult but I’m sure ya’ll can rise to this challenge and to help out a bit you can do any insect and not just bees..:-)) "

I didn't get the shots I was hoping to, we have eagles and hawks and some pretty songbirds.  Instead I got a fairly typical type of bird for the feathered part of the challenge, my friend Shann's hens:


While I was shooting the birds I could hear a couple bees buzzing around.  They were hovering around her heavenly smelling white lilacs... unfortunately every time I thought I had one it was gone before I could snap. 
I thought I'd have time to get more pics later in the week but the weather hasn't cooperated at all... which is okay because we  did need the rain.
