Photo Description
I ran across these pictures today and thought them good enough to share. Now that I won't be outside much, I will spend some time looking over the pictures I have taken this season. It helps ward off claustrophobia and melancholia, and gives me ideas as to what I want to plant in my gardens next year.

I wanted to know if bumble bees made honey. Reddit says, no. All other accounts I read said "yes". They stated that while the honeybee makes enough honey to carry them through the winter, the bumble bee makes only a few days supply. That accounts for the honeybee surviving the winter, while only the queen of the bumble bee nest lives to see another year.

I am terrified of bees and, yet, mesmerized by them at the same time. I absolutely LOVE taking pictures of them!

This bumblebee appears to have slept all night on this passion flower in one of our gardens. I was able to get up very close to it to take this picture.

I captured this image of one of the fabulous, huge, black bumblebees that visit my French beans every day. You can tell how big it is by using the bean flower as a scale.

While fishing one summer, I decided to take photos near our pond. The butterflies and bees had been drawn to the sunflowers. With a little patience, I managed to take this photo.

Everyone knows that bees can sting and can be dangerous, especially if one is allergic. In this photo I tried to capture the essence that dangerous and beautiful things often accompany each other. The bee needs the flower and the flower needs the bee.

My climbing wild roses made it all the way past the top of the deck rail last year, and this year they're up to the eaves! A little bumblebee (on upper left blossoms) flying around the deck plants took advantage of them, as they began to 'peek' though the rails.

Bumblebees love purple coneflowers so much they can't even be distracted by me and my camera getting really up close and personal.
