The Texas bluebonnets are in bloom right now, and I captured this bee doing his business. Note the pollen sacs.

Nice shot there Walter. I've tried a few bee shots, haven't really been sucessful [yet]

The post Beauty and the Beast has a reasonable one, but this is really nice. Well done

Walter I can tell that you planned this one out very carefully and you accomplished what you were aiming for. This is a very well done photograph. All the colors and the sharpness of the bee. Just great.

Thanks for your comments, which are most encouraging. We all hope and work hard for those special opportunities to capture what was in our mind's eye. What a "rush" it is when we get one, eh?
