Honeybee in Golden Light

Like the way this one just glows. Shot in the late afternoon with interesting light…and then that yellow cast from the sunflower just makes the bee glow. Was really taken by the effect when it came off the card. And the sunflowers remind me of my grandmother. Neat to let my mind wander back to such wonderful places.

Been waiting for the sunflowers to fire up. They portend the back end of Summer – which is sad. But the bees are so drawn to them. Often, bumbles and longhorns and others will sleep in them overnight. Found two longhorns nestled in together on the side of one early yesterday. Shame the wind was blowing and the light was so bad. Bee hostel, I guess.
