Daddy Long Legs Go Too Far!

I was killing some time today after the sun popped out with the camera at the hive. I was taking some shots and playing with shutter speeds trying to stop wing beats of the bees when a Daddy Long Legs showed up poking around the hive. It has been an attractant for them all summer, I assume they are there for the ants. But this one decided to check out the upper entrance and got too close. A guard came out to challenge, and DLL did no back off. The bee jumped on and drug him off, sending him flying to the ground.

The sun kept going behind a cloud and I could not get the shutter speed I was wanting. I did get a few good pics of them coming in loaded with pollen and the sun hitting them.
