Weekly photo challenge: On the move

This week’s challenge is On the Move. Here’s what’s been moving in the trees.

Bee among the peach blossoms.
BUZZIN’ — Honey bee buzzing peach blossoms in April. Faster than my shutter, the motion blur is all his.
Yellow butterfly.
IN FLIGHT – Yellow swallowtail zooms through the Ouachita woods. These big-winged creatures can really speed. Hard to pan and follow.
