This isn’t a really good example of this flower. Great bee – but the blossoms look lots better on a more mature blossom because they spread out wider and more perpendicular to the vertical of the rest of the flower. Here’s the complaint: these flowers open early in the morning…well before the sun hits them. That’s not a terrible thing, but when I go to shoot bees on them at eleven or so, they’ve already closed up for the day. For the photographer (the drawer/writer-with-light guy), that means that I’m often shooting at/on them before the sun crests the mountain – and there’s not much light to draw with. Frustrating because they’re such a great flower and the bees do love them.
