Nice bee shots!


They're all good shots, but I love the image of the bee on the blooming Stonecrop!


I've seen the nasty ambush bugs waiting for the innocent! I am wondering, too, if Caryopteris will survive in a container~They won't like the wet soil this winter if i decided to plant them in the garden~We'll see! Good luck with yours! Fantastic shots!!! gail


Great images as usual. I just planted a Caryopteris this spring that is blooming now. I wanted it for its blue blooms but I am finding out that the bees really love it so that is an added plus in the garden. It looks like Joe Pye is another plant that I should add to the sunny part of the woodland bed for the small winged things.

Kathleen, I'm going to have to look up ambush bugs... I don't think I know about them. Love the photos of the flowers and bees, though! :-)


What great pictures! The Honeybees have been here in full force, even on a wet morning like today.
I don't think we have ambush bugs here, but I did see a poor honey bee caught in a spider's web recently.


I always enjoy viewing your photos. You captured the color in the caryopteris beautifully.
I don't like the ambush bugs either!


Wonderful pics! Horrible ambush bug. Good for you!
