What was yesterday’s mysterious Ear Wax/Fry Bread challenge?
The Brazilians (Júlio Chaul, Bob Solar, Techuser, etc.) nailed it in a matter of, oh, seconds:
As they should. Tetragonisca are common, widely-recognized insects in South America. I even used to keep a colony on my porch when I lived in Paraguay. They produced a lovely watery honey.
I was delighted to be able to photograph these little bees again in Brazil. For good reason. The last time I tried shooting a Tetragonisca nest was in 1998, before the photography bug bit me. I wasn’t very good. Look:
I think I’ve gotten better.
Anyway. Next week’s challenge will be harder. I promise.
