Mesmerized:
transfixed, enchanted, spellbound, hypnotized, fascinated

I’m not usually fascinated by insects, bugs, creepy-crawlies, etc. But the images in the USGS Bee Inventory and Monitoring Lab photo stream on Flickr by Sam Droege are indeed mesmer-EYE-zing.  (All are Creative Commons licensed, attribution)

I’m sharing a several of my favorites.  Check out Sam Droege’s photostream for hundreds more!
