This little flip book was inspired by an old tintype I found at a flea market. Something about the three young ladies in those hats tickled my funny bone. I just had to add something that would contrast with their prim and proper pose. The phrase "bees in their bonnets" came to mind, and so this humorous visual story came to be. Bees crawl out from under the bonnets and annoyingly buzz around their heads. One unfortunate bee who decides to land gets smashed and then slowly slides off the table.
