A short post with a bud and a bee.
This a coneflower bud and one of my favorites. Even though the depth of field on this is very shallow I like it because of the tight vertical packing of the soon to be petals and the paleae (the little spikes in the center of a coneflower). It almost looks as though the tops have been sheared to an even length.
The next three photos are of a bee, probably a small carpenter bee.
Thank you for stopping by.
