Macro Monday - Bee

This is a little bit of a blast from the past.  The spring trees have lost their flowers, but we still have lots of bees.  There is a hive in a garden just down the road.  They only time I see lots of bees is if there is any water sitting around in the garden.  Misdirected water - or high jinks by the kids - makes small pools that the bees drink from.

So, for those of you in winter here is a vision of the spring to come.


You can find more macro shots at the wonderfully logically named Macro Monday.

Enjoy the close ups.

What a pretty pink blossom with serrated petals and such a sharp shot of the bee.
For almost twenty years I had a hive of wild bees in a tree hollow in the garden. When the tree fell, the bees left and I miss them dearly. I was so used to having them buzz about me as I dead headed my rose.

We don't have much bees anymore that i see, maybe because it is too hot. Those two hives in our property left last dry season. I wonder where they transferred.

Glad to know you are warm and enjoying flowers and bees. I'm in the South, but it is damp and cold. Your photo reminds me that warmer days will be here soon. It's a very pretty photo. :)

Very pretty flower! Bees were always attracted to me and I don't mean that in a good way...
