Today we have some deep purple crocuses that are just a couple in a thick patch growing under the magnolia tree. Although the flower is of course the subject (it is for A Flower a Day, after all), I was specially happy to get this little bee also in focus, with his tiny head speckled with golden pollen as he took what he needed from this bloom. I am told that bees will not sting you in this situation when they are so busy foraging, that you can even stroke them and they wouldn’t be distracted. I didn’t want to test this theory on this little fellow, but was just happy that he, along with many others was finding something to take back to the hive so early in the season. I wish you all a happy Sunday and send a hug out to all who read this.
