It’s a honeybee and a goldenrod, of course. Ok, ok, so the wind was blowing and the goldenrod wouldn’t stand still. Neither would the bee. At least the background is in focus, so you know I was doing my part.
The honeybee (small orange blob to the left of the goldenrod) was collecting pollen off the goldenrod and was oblivious to the wind and the camera. It’s legs were so heavily swollen with pollen it looked like it was wearing bee-sized leg warmers (you know, the ones that were the rage when the movie “Flashdance” came out?) I thought a photo of the bee would be nice to share on this blog, so here it is.
