A Little Too Close
I was out taking photos of my Rose of Sharon blooms during the summer and was surprised to see this bee coming towards my camera lens. I kept snapping photos as I slowly walked backwards. I survived and he went on to the next bloom. A close call. Amazing to watch these bees get totally immersed in the pollen. They are sometimes solid white as they get full of the pollen.
The Rose of Sharon bushes offer hundreds of blooms and nectar from spring through the end of summer. My three bushes are always covered with bees and butterflies. One of many favorite flowers as they all offer new photos and experiences. I am already looking for new spring flowers and bushes to plant and hopefully attract more butterflies.
