A 52-Week Photo Journey

… Mary Nell Moore's Photography


Week 36 – #24. I Found This

I was full of excitement today when “I found this” female honey bee buzzing from flower to flower gathering pollen.  You may ask why I would get excited and want to photograph it instead of running toward my car.  Take a look at her rear leg with her bulging orange pollen basket.   After she visits a flower, she begins grooming herself and brushes pollen gathered on her body down toward her hind legs and packs the pollen into her pollen basket. Female bees feed their offspring with pollen mixed with a little nectar.16X20 Bee _MNM7890




Week 35 – #6. Back Lit

Flower photography is not what I know best but give me a pat on the back for being brave enough to post this photo alongside many of you who excel in photographing flowers.  This flower caught my eye this morning because it was so  beautifully “back lit.”
