  1. I love how you’ve captured the bee mid-flight. The flower is a beauty too of course.

    1. Thanks Peter. I think its inspiring that the bee carries so much “baggage” in his flight. Like a welcome wagon of sorts.

    1. Oh heck, Gunta, I usually try to photograph the little botanical name sign for each plant I shoot, but I didn’t get this one. I don’t know what it is.

    1. Thank you Karen.
      We owe so much gratitude to our bee friends. And I love honey too! I understand that honey was used by the Egyptians to treat wounds? I should certainly put a few bottles in my earthquake emergency kit. If I don’t need it for a booboo, then I will have it for my dessert ration!
