Back to the well. The blanket flower. What a champ for pollinators. This leafcutter (the one in flight) was really giving the bumble a hard time. Kept crashing into it, trying to knock it off the flower. Territorial little thing. The bumble was unmoved, though.
Traveling some to art fairs and shows in September. Check the sidebar (on a big browser – have to scroll to the bottom on a phone) for dates and places and links – or the Festivals and Events page. Some of the stuff that I’ve printed is stunning – especially the large sizes. And if you introduce yourself in person, I might be inclined to be flexible on prices. Plus it would be neat to meet people who frequent this site.
Enjoy these little ones today. I was pleased with how this shot turned out.
(Parenthetically, we broke the 200-day mark a bit more than two weeks ago. That’s a lot of bees!)
