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.
