The Beautiful Buzzing

Last Saturday after a delicious breakfast with a girlfriend, we strolled around downtown and found this lovely Magnolia tree. Then we heard the buzzing, and as we stepped a few inches closer, look what we found! I had to try to get some photos of these wonderful insects…

If you look closely, you’ll see the pair…
And if you see the blurr on your right, well, that’s the bee that became camera shy, when I gladly got out of the way. This shot was my second and last! 😁

And here are some great honey bee quotes:

“Words are like bees – some create honey and others leave a sting.” Unknown

“The lovely flowers embarrass me, They make me regret I am not a bee.”
Emily Dickinson

“Handle a book as a bee does a flower, extract its sweetness but do not damage it.” John Muir

“It is not how busy you are, but why you are busy – the bee is praised, the mosquito is swatted.” Unknown

“Bees do have a smell, you know, and if they don’t they should,
for their feet are dusted with spices from a million flowers.” Ray Bradbury

I hope you enjoyed this nugget of nature at its finest and I wish you a lovely weekend ahead.
