Advent: December 5th

Today is so drear and murky that I felt like a little sunshine and brightness would be nice. I took this photo of one of our honey bees working the apple blossom in our orchard back at the beginning of June. I love bees concentration and “busyness” as they go about their work – it’s quite easy to get close ups of them. Her “baskets” on her legs are full of pollen – those are the yellow blobs you can see – they store the pollen in the hairs on their legs to take back to the hive.
