  8. Carmen, you're now venture into the world of bees..It's kind of fun, isn't it?

    Beautiful photos!

  10. my fav
    thanks for beautiful pics

  11. What a busy little bee:) Nice shots of the flowers and the critter.

  12. Nice. I love catching a shot of a bee or butterfly on a flower.

  13. What a beautiful yellow! Nice shot of Daisy and the Bee.

  14. Love the colour. I must look into that Camera Critters; we have thousands of critters on file!

  15. These are excellent pictures. They give me extra satisfaction because I wanted to get a picture with a bee just like that one, but right at that moment the sky opened up and poured down rain. I was caught far from my truck in another rainstorm, so I never got my picture.

    That bee was pretty far away, over a fence, so
    I couldn't get any closer.

    That bee wasn't really moving much. I wonder if it might have been hurt or intoxicated! Or maybe just so intent on his work.

    I've started keeping my camera with me all the time. You just don't know when you might have the opportunity for a good picture!

    I love yellow so I was in my element in that field of daisies.

    I think I've used up all the shots from my daisy field so I'll have to move on to something else now. I do have all those wonderful orchids.

    I've never had a bee that still before. I was wondering if he might have died of happiness out there in that hot sun.

    Yellow daisies and the white ones are just about
    my favorite flowers. They are so bright and cheery.

    Usually bees are much more active than this one was. I couldn't get any closer, though, because there was a fence in the way.

    So glad you like the pictures. Sorry you missed your bee photo because of the rain. I have another one to post, this one in a poppy. It's fun to get them but I rarely do.

    Aren't the daisies bright and cheerful. Camera Critters are fun but I often have other memes I do on Saturday. I do try to get here from time to time.

    I enjoy the picture taking. It is a nice break from poetry, on occasion, when my brain is weary of rhyming.

    Glad you liked the pictures. I just spent the
    last three days in Sacramento with the newlyweds. They're off to Las Vegas for a long weekend next Thursday after Alex's calculus final, before his next classes start.

    I'm always glad when you like my efforts!

    This bee wasn't very active. That daisy kept him enchanted, I guess.

    secret agent woman -
    Usually, I can't keep up with bees, they are so
    busily flitting around!

    Iowa Gardening Woman -
    That field of daisies had the blue Pacific beyond and just blew my mind!

  17. Dear Carmen,
    Thank you for visiting my CameraCritters-post. It's been a long time since I have participated in CC, but since I had something very special to tell, I thought I could squeeze it in. And low and behold I find you here with bees! I am not a bug-photographer, but some of my blogging-jewellery-sisters do. Take a peek at Karen Stahlecker's insect-pics:

    if you haven't already seen them (She makes marvelous jewellery that I would love to be able to afford to order one day!)

    Best wishes,
    For the benefit of other readers:

  18. Here's another photographic study of an insect that Karen (WillOaksStudio) posted for WordlessWednesday.

    I love the bright yellow colour in your pics! Really sunny!
