Gorgeous Honeybee on the Salvia

I wish I liked all the pics I post here as well as I like this one. So many neat elements. I’ve seen so so many on salvias, but this one shows so well how she goes after it with her tongue. Great eye, too. And face.

Strikes me as I type how complex the bee is – then the hive – then the ecosystem is in which they operate. Such balance and equilibrium – and always self-correcting. Nudges here and there, maintaing balance. Could all be a bunch of yammering and confirmation bias about what I need to see in my own world right now…but there are lessons in observing (and thinking about) bees.

Or, as the Bard said:
…  tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in everything…

As I like it!
