Exploring paths less traveled
lovely macro shot. i love it.
We have thistle in the Everglades, but it's the least of our worries. I have a rash on my hand that I can't figure out what it's from, whether it was poison ivy or poison wood or something else. The mysteries in the swamp never end!
Hi Janie, That thistle must not be 'prickly' to those bees... Ya think???? Interesting... Wish they could talk to us and tell us WHY... haHope you have a great weekend.Hugs,Betsy
Guess I'd be thinking, sure is pretty and rather sweet.
for such a prickly weed, it sure looks pretty as do the bumbles.
Whatever about the thistle being prickly, take a look at the fantastic colour. Looks like those bees are enjoying themselves.
Amazing closeup. You've captured the details very nicely!- Pixellicious Photos
Great bee capture, and the thistle is beautiful too!
Great photograph. I love it.
Amazing capture Janie! They do look quite content, like a Mamma and her baby.
They must have been confused! I like the bright color.
Brilliant capture! I enlarged the picture - great!
I jumped when it popped on my screen. I didn't expect the bees! lol
Love the bumble bee photo, they just don't get the attention they deserve. They are great little native pollinators. It was nice to see it featured.
Janie,Great shot and such wonderful color!Wow!
A bee! So they haven't all vanished! Beautiful shot, Janie!
