Today I’m taking part in Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote Challenge. This week’s theme is “buzz”. I encourage you to click on each photo to see a larger view. If you like what you see, please subscribe to this blog to receive updates of the new photos I post, usually 3 to 5 times a week.

Bees are the first thing I think about when I hear “buzz”. Enjoy my selection of busy bees, hard at work collecting nectar. Some of them are so good at collecting it, they store it in bags on their legs. I also love how bees get covered with pollen – nature’s most perfect pollinators.

    Your photography blog is exactly what I need this cold, gray January. Reminds me that spring will indeed come, and I’ll see blooms and flowers again. In the meantime, I’ll soak up the sunny weather from your lovely photos. 🙂

      Thank you, Cee! You sure have to be patient because some bees tend to move around a lot and not stay in one flower. And you have to find the nice ones who let you get close enough. But they’re fun to photograph nonetheless.

I'd love to hear what you think about my photos. Please leave your comments below.
