The Bees and the Flowers

Every day on my way to work I drive by a house near downtown Albuquerque that has a wonderful flower garden in the front yard. I have stopped at the house several times to take photos. The owners of the house either have not been home, or they do not mind my photographing their flowers.

  2. Gorgeous photos, Linda! Makes me want to sit and ID all of your bees 🙂

  3. I can see why the bees are attracted to the sunflowers, they are gorgeous! Beautiful images of busy bees and a wasp! I sometimes walk around the neighborhood and snap photos of the insects visiting the garden flowers. There is always something interesting to see. Wonderful images, as always!
