The pull of a daisy strands a honey bee in orbit,
wings reflecting memories of summer.

    Just the image for this grey November day–a nice reminder of all the tiny suns that will blossom again and the nectar-hungry satellites that will orbit them.

    Excellent capture! And nice presentation of the buttercup: they’re not easy to get the light right on.

    Last rays of a fall sun, off to hide away from winters cold. We all wait like the bee for spring to come again. Farewell precious pollinator!

  • Rick said:

    Thanks Diane. Hope my bees make it through the winter.
