Lens-Artists Challenge #178 – You Choose

So this week Tina’ let us choose our own theme. I am, perhaps unsurprisingly, going for some glorious bees to remind us of last summer and to help us look forward to next year. They are mostly bumblebees but I had to include the beautiful solitary mining bee too.

    Wow Krina – very impressive! Do you plant flowers that attract them or are these images from multiple places? Either way you’ve done a wonderful job capturing and identifying them for us. Very beautifully done and an excellent subject for the Your Choice week!

      Most of the images the bees are on native wildflowers. Though I take care to plant flowers they will like. The poppy for example self seed themselves in my vegetable patch.

    Love your bees! I am very impressed with your ID knowledge! There must be leaf cutter bees nesting somewhere around my place as I notice bites taken out of leaves (mostly roses) during the summer.

      Thank you..it does sound like a leaf cutter. We have one species in our garden too but only ever see them in low numbers. It’s a lovely bee though.

    Oh lovely reminders that there is a summer waiting somewhere…and I love bees and bumble bees. The mining bee was new to me! Very well photographed and so many positive vibes. Thank you, Karina.
