Cute fuzzy bee! I like the folded wings. Great detail on the tiny flowers.

It looks more lavender than blue. Thanks for playing.

Happy Blue Monday, Gerald.

Even the bees know a good thing when they find it.

I love this picture its good to see bees at work. I love to try to capture them but mine do not seem willing to sit still long enough. I have managed a few shots but they seem to know what I am up to and just as I get the picture they move...........Janice
