I bought a beetle brooch while attending a weavers conference.
Happy Macro Monday!
Enjoy more macro photography here!
Sometimes, very early on very cool mornings, you can feel the fur on the bumblebees. They are groggy from the cold and don't object to a gentle touch. Your brooch is wonderful, obviously hand made. Marnie
BEAUTIFUL bee shots and nifty broach too ;--)Hugs and blessings,
July is right around the corner. Hot, sticky nights and sunny days are almost here.
so very beautiful and then I had to chuckle at the last one, I suppose because I did not expect a handmade bug.
Your little bee buddies are so cute seated on their cushions. I also like your beetle pin.
Your pics are a delight! Those sweet little bumbles are enjoying a feast in your garden.Wherever did June go???
Love the brooch!! That bee is mighty fine!!
It seems like just a few days ago we were waiting for spring to get here, and now, I'm wondering where it went!Great bee shots and nice broach!
I love taking pictures of bees on echinacea too. Great macros!
wonderful bee shots so b-e-a-utiful.
Dear Sherry.....beautiful bees, and lovely brooch......I do so love the cone flower but sadly they do not do well here.I added lots of grit to the soil and put them in a raised spot but I do not think they liked the very wet winter here......I shall just have to enjoy yours!!
Gorgeous macros, as always, Sherry! I don't think you have ever gotten that close to a bumblebee before. And I can see why you got the brooch! It is wonderful!
Coneflowers are my favorite flowers, and they must be the bees' favorites, too. Such beautiful photos, Sherry! If I could get up really early one morning, I'd like to try Marnie's idea of petting a bumblebee. The brooch is lovely, just perfect for you.
Bee--utiful! Love the fuzzy bee!love and light anna xo
Beautiful bee photos Sherry, I had Cone flowers in a pot but this year they didn't come back, such a shame I must try again. This year is going so quickly, nearly July already!
Coneflowers seem ideally suited to the bees' long tongue. Great macros.
Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bee!
Great bee photos, Sherry. It always surprises me have furry they are :-)
Hi Sherry,I've just been catching up with your blog (went away for a week while we had builders here and I've been sooo busy clearing up after them since I got back!).I've really enjoyed reading about all your Sunday safaris - I love the candy striped leafhopper (I've never seen anything like that over here!), the lacewings (we get those, but your close-up of the face of one of them is amazing), and the ebony jewel wings. I also love your shots of the orange sulphur butterfly you found in your purse - how wonderful to have her sit on your fingers like that - and the wren in your "w" post, which is very similar to our European wrens (I wonder if they're the same?). And your macro furry bees are just gorgeous - I always want to stroke them too, but I've never dared try.Is it still very hot over there? I don't think it's got up to 99F anywhere over here :o - but the shade temperature has been in the upper 80s in my garden this week and it's very muggy and unpleasant.
