Totally awesome shot! Thanks for participating in Bug Week. (Even if you didn’t realize you were.) 🙂
Thanks. And no, I didn’t realize. I’m not a big bug fan, but bees are so fascinating. They go about their business and let those showoff butterflies get all the good press. 🙂

Thanks, Steven! I appreciate it.
I did a little monochrome colored pencil sketch and could email it if you wanted to see. A real joy to draw this one! Not sure of your email address.
Sure! It’s ordinaryhandsome1@gmail. I look forward to seeing it.

Thank you for visiting
The image if the bee on the flower is great
Lots of color
As always Sheldon
They’re so cute when they’re sleeping. Almost makes me forget I’m afraid of them. 🙂
I used to be, but I’m relatively comfortable with them. If you respect their space, they leave you alone. Hornets and wasps, however…

Great photo of an increasingly rare bee!
Thank you. I love bees. I used to have a nervous, reflexive attitude towards them, but their value can’t be overstated. I always give them a respectful distance, and they do the same. They’re a marvel to watch. 🙂
Hi Steven – thanks for all the likes and the follow – I’m glad you like what you see on my blog. Yours is pretty damn good too! – All the best – Opher
Thanks Opher. I grew up in the 60’s, though they were my formative years. The 70’s were more my “growing into me” decade. But oh man, the music, when it was still music and not noise. The passion and desire for change were extraordinary. I was born a decade too late to have fully participated. And then there was the disco era, and I shall say no more about that.
