Summer Time Bee

I photographed this macro of a bumble bee collecting nectar and pollen from butterfly weed at Crex Meadows in the summer. No bees around Minnesota now, but it looks like we are on our way to a brown Christmas for the first time that I can remember. You never know though, the weather people have been known to get it wrong on an occasion or two.

I adore bumble bees! This is a great shot. We are soggy green for Christmas this year. However, it's the people you are with who make it special. Merry, merry!

Here in Iowa they said our last brown Christmas was 2006. Your shot is great, and it has me longing for summer again.

Hi there - very nice picture. Very well controlled dof.

Thankfully we will have a green Christmas after many years of drought.
