Smile! The world is a beautiful place (^_^)


The bees are back! πŸ™‚ Three photos I shot earlier today of lovely little honey bees (Apis mellifera) collecting pollen.

The bee in the first picture as a nice basket on her hind leg:

"Unique among all God's creatures, only the honeybee improves the environment and preys not on any other species."
- Royden Brown (author of 'Bee Hive Product Bible')
