Busy bees (or not)

Lynne Robinson, Hewitt, New Jersey

While taking photos last week at Skylands (the New Jersey Botanical Gardens) I came across these bees clustered all over these flowers. They must have known colder weather was coming and were all trying to gather that last bit of food. Even though they look like they are being industrious, they were actually quite sleepy. You know me—can’t resist a sleepy bee!

The flowers are luminescent in that lighting.  Great shots!

those dahlias (?) make such a great frame/context for the bees

lovely lovely

Becky, thanks! It was kind of a cloudy day with sun peeping through at times.

Letty, yes I *think* they are dahlias. Wasn’t sure tho ...
hah, my verification word is “letters” ... maybe I’ll be writing you one soon!

What fantastic photographs.
