Cone Flower Bee
Don't you just hate it when you're working and someone keeps looking
over your shoulder. Don't they know you have a lot of pollen and nectar
to collect!? Lucky for me, she did not feel that way.
I spent some time hanging out at one of my favorite photo spots. A little nursery near Gelson's on state street. They are always very friendly when I'm wandering around with my camera. They seem to attract a lot of butterfly and bee activity there, I can only assume since they are out in the middle of a parking lot without much other greenery around.
I really like the cone flowers there. This is not my first bee on a purple cone flower shot from there.

Whenever we go to the Monterey area we like to stop at the nurseries in Carmel Valley. We've found some really different plants there. And of course there are always plenty of bees and hummers to chase.

So I wonder how Echinacea Honey would taste?
It still amazes me how fuzzy honey bees are if you look close. I guess that's why I like chasing them around with my camera so much. It is nearly impossible to see at this size but there are actually furs between the segments of her eyes.

I went out today with the intent to try out my new
memory card for my camera. I wanted to fill it up once quick to make sure it
was working well. I can't think of a faster way to burn a
roll of film (or fill up a memory card) than finding some
beautiful flowers covered in bees.
I really liked a lot of the shots I took, but this one stood out. I love the background colors, and the bee is absolutely fuzzy!

Pollen Covered Minus One Second
This shot was taken less than a second before last Thursday's
photo of the day, and is in response to the feedback on that
No doubt there was too much pollen in her eye! She had to stop to rub it.

Well she wants you to think she has been working hard.
But actually she just got done raiding a bag of Doritos.
The hummers have been elusive this week, but the bees have sure put on a show to make up for it!

I really like this shot because, not only can
you make out the individual flowers in the center
of the daisy, but you can see the different stages
of their development. In the center they have not
opened yet, but has you move out you can see the stages
of the flowers' development.
This is not the first time I have enjoyed the structure of a daisy on the photo of the day.

Today, when we took The Hound for her afternoon walk we bumped into one of our neighbors. She was working in her garden like she does almost every day. Part of her garden was particularly attractive to the bees, so I took the opportunity to get a few bee portraits.

Honey Bee Hovering
This was actually from a Hound walk from a couple of weeks ago. I try not to chase too many bees while she is with me, but this guy was really showing off right beside the sidewalk.

This image was one shot before yesterday's photo of the day.
It was a good walk with the hound. Maybe because it has finally warmed up a little during the day. (Personally I liked the snow! But I am not conscious early enough in the morning to go play in it before it melts :)

There are not may California Poppies
blooming at the moment. But the ones that
are sure do put on a nice show.
It was the pollen that attracted me to this particular flower.
