Pretty typical honeybee on the Russian Sage. Looking at this, I thought, “there’s nothing very special about this shot”. And then I realized that “nothing special” here is quite a thing. Something this lovely and detailed (talking about the bee and the blossoms) and glorious is somewhat “meh” to me…makes me realize how fortunate I am to think this pedestrian. And I’m not talking about the photography itself – but nature. Intricate, beautiful, timeless nature. What a thrilling thing to be in a world where this is every day.
