Remember that my 2014 nature photography calendars are available for sale on my online Zazzle store.  All calendars are made to order in the USA so you support the US economy with your purchase, and a starving artist at the same time (me!). I appreciate all referrals through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and of course your blog or website.

Today I’m taking part in the Macro Monday photo challenge. You can click on each photo for a larger view.

If you like what you see, I encourage you to subscribe so you can enjoy the new photos I post a few times a week.

With the year-round blooms we get in San Diego, bees are busy every day. We’re lucky to enjoy colorful flower and tree blooms even when winter is approaching, which helps me greatly since it means I can take new photos every week.

Here are a few busy bees on a pink powder puff flower. The many bees on that tree weren’t happy to have me so close to them, so I had to give up after a few minutes, but I managed to get a few decent shots before I left.

    Great pics!

      Haha, yeah, that’s why I didnt’ linger! Bees are usually tolerant when it comes to having someone stand right in their faces, but I think the lower count of available blooms makes them a little less patient with strangers. I still think it was worth the short session!

    I love the bees and the colour and shape of the flower.
