Rare on the Roses – In Flight

I don’t get many shots of bees in flight. And fewer still of ones on roses for some reason. They bees are on them from time to time, but they don’t usually stay very long on a single blossom…and there are so many other blossoms that the bees are interested in that I don’t spend much time shooting on the roses. This is a nice grab, though!

Bee Buffet: Inaugural Post

So…you get to see so many neat bees…really on only parts of flowers. And, somehow, I think I’m doing you a disservice by not showing things in a broader context. I’ve got so many great shots of the remarkable gardens here…so I’m going to create a separate tag called Bee Buffet under which I’ll post some shots of individual flowers, combinations, and garden shots. Incredible stuff.

Today’s is just a random rose – I’m sure it has a name. Just sitting in a pot on the front porch steps, but it caught my eye this morning when I was out after bees. If you’re particularly interested in the names of it or anything else, ask in a comment (there’s a link to every post) and I’ll try to get it figured out.

That said, here’s a pretty rose – a minuscule fraction of the broader buffet:
