Honey Bees

I have seen so many honey bees this year, and I'm so excited about it!

They have been on the lilacs

and dandelions.

And today I discovered them on the Staghorn Sumac Tree's blossoms.

I was so excited that the detail was so clear on this pic that I zoomed in again on one of the little bees.

I've never seen the blossom this detailed. I didn't even realize that each little pod had all of these little flowers on it.

My camera rarely can get shots like this, which is why I am saving up for a Canon Rebel. And a macro lens. :) The world looks so much better up close, I think.

And may these little honey bees love pollinating my garden this year, and have many, many years of happiness. :)


  1. Those are some great close up shots. Glad to see those honey bees at work. I've heard their populations are dropping. We don't need that.
