A Rare Double in Flight

I’ll often get multiple bees in a shot. And sometimes even with both in focus. But it’s really rare to get two in flight and in focus. So this is a pretty neat one. Dumb luck, of course, but I’m pleased with it. Something wrong with the crop, but I can’t figure it out. The bees are great, though! Shot yesterday. Cloudy and rainy today so likely no shooting today. Need the precip, though, for sure.

Finally…a Native!

Have only seen honeybees this spring so far…until today. Only got a couple of shots of this little one (sweat bee) before she went elsewhere. Been wondering about them (the natives, I mean) for a while. Was nice to finally see something different. Now…where are the bumbles? In other news, just got a text from our beekeeping friend – our (foster) bees will be back in 3-4 weeks. Fantastic!

Approaching the Crocuses

They were out today. The light was all over the place and it was only in the mid-40s, but… Not only were the crocuses going wild, but the tiny daffodils were starting as were the Siberian squills. And some kind of small iris – the really short ones. About four inches tall. Maybe Siberian, too? I’ve forgotten. I especially like the rock in this one. It is a “rock garden”, after all.
