Bee in Flower

Posted by on Aug 25, 2011 in Macro, Photography, Plants & Flowers, Wildlife | 18 comments

Taken a  couple of weeks ago on the road between Durango and Silverton, Colorado. I was running late to pick up my husband and daughter, but I just HAD to stop and photograph this patch of flowers along the side of the road. The bee was just a bonus. Expect another aspect of it next week, with a different angle, different flower, and different treatment.

We’ve been away from home for a few days, visiting my husband’s family. A visit to a local butterfly garden yielded this gorgeous monarch. I was loving the textures and patterns so much, I converted it to black and white in order to show them off better.

Chipmunks may be a dime a dozen, but how many have the guts to climb a cactus like this one for a little snack?
