A 52-Week Photo Journey

… Mary Nell Moore's Photography

Week 36 – #24. I Found This

3 Comments

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

A true Southerner, I was born in Georgia but lived most of my adult life in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 2001, my husband and I retired and moved to beautiful Sarasota, FL. We quickly realized that we were not retirement material and could not play golf two or three times a week so we got our real estate licenses and affiliated with Coldwell Banker on Longboat Key. My love for photography is very beneficial to me when photographing interiors and exteriors of the homes we list. Other than photography, I have a keen interest in genealogy and golf (whenever I can find the spare time from our real estate practice).
