Did you notice the bee had some company in that last photo? I didn’t, until I looked closely at the next one. Nasty little sapsucking beasties. And yet—they’re rather lovely, aren’t they, all rosy in the morning light?

I agree – they add a certain je ne sais quoi… It’s like the Discovery Channel in one macro shot. So much going on there.

Oh! Was it here on your blog that there was a discussion this past autumn about the absence of walnuts? All the speculation was about climate change; nobody mentioned POLLINATORS!
I even recall a newspaper article about it and there was no talk of pollinators in that, either.
I just finished FRUITLESS FALL, thanks to your recommendation, and it’s been permeating my days.

Never mind. Walnuts are self- and wind-pollinating. Should have done my research first rather than leaping out of bed and coming here to post. Sigh . . .

Hi Melissa – I LOVE your bee’s photos! So beautiful shots – aren’t bees most beautiful God’s Creatures?
I think that Itsy-Bitsy companion on the lower flower might be a Crab Spider … MIGHT be 🙂
Love & hugs!
