A Group of Bees in Spearfish Canyon

Shortly after I bought my camera I took it out in Spearfish Canyon and began to learn how to use the various settings. I found myself surrounded by wildflowers and of course bees. I found this group of surprisingly relaxed bees near Bridal Veil Falls. I thought it was unusual for them to be still long enough for this macro shot to be in decent focus. With all the close-up photographs of flowers and bees taken it seems easy for such a shot to be cliché but this one still seems to stand out and be fairly interesting.
