I Love Bees

          Is this not the greatest little guy ever? Working their little hearts out to make the garden and this world a more beautiful place.
I had decided to take a late afternoon break and just head outside and see what the world was up to and I got lucky enough to get a picture of this guy in mid-flight! I hadn't realized I had caught him on film until I opened the pictures to edit. I was really excited about it as all summer I watch them and their friends working my flowers and admiring their persistence and dedication. He's obviously a typical drone, but I have seen many different kinds  of flying insects that are not in this fella's genus. I have no idea what the others are but they seem to work just as hard so they are all welcome here!

I have actually gotten up on a crisp fall morning and found these sweeties asleep on the flowers where they stayed for the night. While they are still groggy I can reach over and pet their little backs and to me that is a thrill. The garden, no matter how humble, never fails to amaze me.


  1. Hi Tina,

    Oh goodness - what a lovely post - your photographs are so beautiful and you really have a way of capturing God's simple creations.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Wonderful shot! I agree there are so many interesting and amazing things to see in one's garden. I love taking a morning walk in my tiny garden. And every morning I find something new and exciting there.

  3. I love the bee movie. Have you seen it? You will love it. Thanks so much for your kind words on my blog last friday. Hugs. Simone xx

  4. Hi Simone! Yes I have seen the Bee Movie, I took a friend's children (6 of them all under 8) and what an experience!

  5. Hi Tina,

    Thanks for coming by my blog for a visit. It's always nice to meet new blog friends. Your sunflowers are awesome. My hubby loves them, and we tried to grow some, but the squirrels keep eating the flowers. How cool that you were able to touch a bee's back. They are hard workers aren't they. thanks for sharing your pretty pictures.
