I probably should have cropped out those few petals on the left side. Great tongue, though. And notice the photobomber incoming – out of focus in the foreground…
First dragonfly of the year for me! That Russian Sage again. Just a magnetic plant. Such a beautiful dragonfly, too.
Was checking a bunch of lavender looking (with lots of hope) for bees. Wasn’t quite ready yet. But this pretty one showed up. Also saw a dragonfly today, but it sure had no interest in holding still for me. Still looking…
Oh, and I think I should mention: every day when I put the copyright (©bees.photo) on a picture, I pick a contrasting color from another part of the picture. Today’s purple (in the text) came from the damselfly’s eye. I never knew!
I think that’s a catalpa leaf she’s on. Lots of fun pics old/new in the spring. Speaks to me in some way. And the bee is really cute. Been a while since a bonus bee.
