The warmth of early October brought out the bees.


(even with hairy legs),


With fragile wings sitting atop a throne of flowers,

And bee-draggled in the rain,

But still clinging onto the petal, onto life

Like a gorgeous jewel.

  2. That first photo is gorgeous. Love the colors and light….and the furry friend. Reminds me of the verse in the book of Sirach….The bee is small among flying creatures, but her product is the best of sweet things.

  5. ladyfi,
    It is difficult to find any words to express these stunning photos!
    In the first one, the bee looks like sleeping peacefully on a pillow. How cute! What is it dreaming?
