Worker Bee

She’s busy as a bee! I was out of town, out of state, actually, and had just a little downtime, so I took a stroll with my camera. It was that wonderful golden hour as the sun sinks to the horizon, and there she was with her sisters, busily trying to collect as much nectar as possible before curfew. Her bread baskets are full of pollen, too.

Just a soft, gray, bit of fluff, snagged by a random twig. Between our chickens and the myriad wild birds flocking here, these are not so very rare, but when the light catches them just so I find them fascinating.
