Apologies if you find the title sexist. I often have my tongue in my cheek and a glint in my eye. And am irreverent.
Great shot of a great bee. She’s the bee for the month of September in next year’s calendar. Hope you can see the grains of pollen on her eye. And backlit bees are just neat. That glow and translucence.
Fun shot and kind of rare in that there’s not much in the foreground that’s out of focus. Cute face and the one coming in from the left with her tongue out is a nice touch. Grinding through winter, looking forward to the bees again. It’s cold!
I’ve really, really gotten behind on posting these. And I’m very sorry about that. I’ve got them loaded up and ready to go. Just haven’t made time to do it. Trying to catch up now. You need your Daily Bee. As do I. Great shot from October today. Lots of snow on the ground right now, but every day is another day closer to the first bee of the spring. Looking forward to that! Enjoy.
I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a real fan of chrysanthemums. Still not. But wow…this pic is fantastic of the flowers and the bee. Tongue and pollen basket. Great eye. Not much not to like about this one. I’ll end up getting over ‘mums eventually.
I like this one on the Russian Sage a lot. The lines. Kind of gives an idea of how dense the blossoms are. It’s no wonder that those plants and blossoms are just pulsing with bees once they start to bloom. Great plant for pollinators – and it’s not very thirsty at all – and blooms and blooms and blooms and blooms. Plant a couple – or a lot!
This one makes me smile, too. I know it’s dumb to anthropomorphize insects, but this one looks just a little puckish to me. And I’m going to use a little of my artistic license that I think I’m supposed to have to be okay with it.
