The Pollen & The Bee

He's rather busy, wouldn't you say?

Two amazing specimens of nature I wanted to share with you today. The first being this very busy 'nature's pollenator' or in more technical terminology, Agapostemon Virescens. And secondly, the intricate pattern woven into a bloom, the yellow Sunflower. I took these images very very late this afternoon on my way back home from a trip to Bardstown for business. As it happens, I couldn't resist doing a late lunch at Isaac's Cafe at Bernheim and spending the last few minutes of my lunch hour taking just a few images along the parameter of the wildflower meadow. The meadow was sadly, and most disturbingly, dry. ENJOY!


  1. They are amazing. Brilliant colors.
    Just Beautiful

  2. Wonderful colors Carol! The green of the bee is a wonderful contrast to the yellows of the flower!

    He is a bright one! It is a messy job, but someone has to do it, Carol. We have clouds today, this photo is a pleasant sight.
