    I don’t know how you get such clear photo’s, really lovely. Tell me do you get down on your hands and knees to get such close, clear shots. You can almost smell the perfume of the flower.

      LOL, Sue. I blindly hold the camera in the place and press the button – repeat about ten times or as long as the subject stays in place – and hope one photo turns out good. 😀

    nice bee – and that is one of the prettiest pinks ever – soft and light – and rich in the middle 🙂

    I should love to have a nice big copy to print out and stick up on my wall, please, Christine.

        Oh, I imagine many readers would like it too, CJR – but the thought doesn’t occur to ’em.
        I’m acquisitive in regard to bees. [grin]

  5. Oh, Mr. Bee. What large eyes you have. I never knew.
    Christine, how is it all your subjects ten to p.o.s.e. when you approach with your camera. Look at him. He’s a HAM. 😀 😀 😀

      Psst, don’t tell anyone, Tess, but I think this particular bee is on it’s last legs. It was very docile. I believe they only live about 10 days or so. 😮

      1. I had no idea. Could he be drunk on pollen? The flowers aren’t strayed with anything, I hope? Whatever the case may be, he has made history by appearing in your collection of photos. 🙂

    A lovely bee and a beautifully coloured rose. You’ve captured the bee so well.

      Thank you Millie. I finished “Pit of Vipers’ last night – loved it, as I expected. It’ll probably be a couple of weeks before I do the review. 🙂

        I’m thrilled that you liked this book, too – and that you’re going to review it. Many, many thanks. But don’t half kill yourself rushing to get it done. There’s nor hurry, so fit it in whenever you can.

      Thanks Joanne. I was pretty taken aback the first time I saw the eyes, too. Amazing size!

  9. Does that lilac rose have a stronger scent than usual? For some reason I get that impression.

      Hi Susan. I just went out and stuck my nose in one (after making sure there wasn’t a lurking bee) and they are well perfumed, a hint of cloves.

    Darn you, Christine, now I’m going to have to Follow you, too. I just don’t have the time for all these darn Follows–I think I’m up to ten now. Erg. But your pictures are so wonderful, and the posts are interesting. Bugger. (Is that still rude? When I was a little girl in England, that was SO rude! ha ha ha)

      I love the word Bugger, actually. 🙂 It is so expressive! Thanks for the follow. Ten? A whole ten? OMGosh. Just kidding. I got a bit of a shock in the reader the other day when I found I’m following 179. That’s plain silly. No wonder I don’t have time to get around to everyone. But some I follow have 1000s and 1000s of followers so they wouldn’t even notice I don’t bother commenting. And some are websites, not WordPress blogs. I sprinkle ‘likes’ here and there and try and get to everyone who visits me … eventually! I’m fairly low maintenance, I hope! Don’t feel you have to comment every time. 😀
