Bee on coneflower

No, not global warming, just a shot I didn’t get around to posting back in August.



  1. That sure brightens up my day. 🙂

    • That’s good to see, kateri! That’s what I hoped for.

  2. Fabulous color – and such great detail on that fuzzy bee.

    • That one took some effort. That species never seems to stop it’s wings and doesn’t stay long in one place. Pretty little thing though.

  3. The colours are so bright and pretty. I needed that right now.

    • I thought there should be a little break from the season.

  4. If that was my photo, I would have posted it right away back in August. But it’s gorgeous now…especially with the flurries on it.

    • The flurries create an anachronism don’t they, but a pleasant one.

  5. Wonderful color and subject Terry, it sure days add a splash of color to the winter !!

    • Thanks Bernie! We don’t even have white as a Christmas color here this year. There’s some snow up high but none at all on the ground here in the valley.

  6. It’s a bee? You’ve caught such wonderful detail in her, but now I wonder just what kind of bee she is.

    Hoping all is well with you. I’m still here, a little worse for the wear, but still able to surface from time to time.

    • I’m not sure what kind of bee, but I see them frequently. They are hard to catch!

      Tabbie, it’s so good to hear from you! I wish you well and think of you often!

  7. The bee is so sharp and clear and the light on the petals …so pretty.
    What kind of camera equipment?

    • I use a Nikon D80 and this photo was taken with a Nikkor 60mm f/2.8D macro lens.
