The Bee’s Kneez ~ Nature Photography

Bees are almost impossible to capture in action. They flutter about with such focus and determination, rarely stopping to pose for the camera.

Spring Delights ~ Nature Photography

Spring has been rather rainy this year and it has coaxed out the lush beauty that has been laying dormant.
