Today I’m taking part in the Macro Monday photo challenge. 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.

Earlier today I got the chance to photograph very busy bees on large lavender blooms. With our recent (ridiculously) warm weather, we’re starting to see flowers blooming here and there. The bees are loving it and keeping busy collecting nectar and flying from flower to flower. I couldn’t resist taking a few pictures of these bees on lavender flowers when I walked out. A lot of them came out blurry but a few of them are nice enough to share here. Enjoy!
