Bird and Bees

Let me tell you 'bout the birds
Mr. Lazuli Bunting
Mrs. Lazuli Bunting
Mr. Goldfinch
Mrs. Goldfinch
and the bees
Honey Bee on Chokecherry
Honey Bee on Apple Blossom
and the flowers and the trees
a
Crabapple Tree in Bloom
And the moon up above ...
You may have thought I was going to tell you about a thing called "Love", as the song goes.  But I'm not taking this any farther.  I've created the atmosphere.  You're on your own from here!

  2. The honey bee on the apple blossom shot is the winner of this lot. Ok, I'll finish out the last bit of the song line with my post for tomorrow.

  5. What gorgeous close-up photos, Janie! Did you get a new Macro/zoom lens? Why is it that the males of the species get the most vibrant colors?

  8. Wonderful post and photos, Janie. I have that song in my head now! You are very sharp to capture both the male and females of those two birds, and the bee photo is stunning. Of course, the moon rising above the prairie is just spectacular. Thanks for sharing. Blessings from Jo

  13. All of your pictures are wonderful -- the macros of the bees are amazing in their detail. But I am very much impressed with Mr. Lazuli Bunting. He's a very colorful character.

  16. All your landscape photos are breathtaking but when I see these colorful flowers and little critters I feel more like home and safe.
    Beautiful little birds too.

  18. Hi there! Great blog. I'm writing to ask permission to use one of our beautiful photos in a small business website. In particular, I'd love to use the one of the honey bee on the apple blossom.

    Please let me know your usage restrictions/fees, if any. Thanks in advance! ~Liz Liszey2@gmail.com
