This wee little one (either a bee or hoverfly) was foraging for food on the face of a sunflower the other day. He was quite willing to stay put for a few photos, which was quite nice of him. I think we bonded that day.
This light pole next to the Holm Building on 2nd Ave. looked rather pretty with those beautiful hanging flower baskets on it. It’s like the pole is waving a couple of pompoms and is getting ready to do a cheer.
Guest photographer Maryann Nielson caught this little guy or gal on a flower at Deepwood Estate in nearby Salem. I’m not sure if it’s a bee or a bee mimic, but either way, it’s a cutie. Thanks, Maryann!
Guest photographer Tom Miller is bringing us the pretty again today with this beautiful flower with a little tiny bug on it. Is it a columbine flower? I am unsure. I also don’t know what the bug is, but it’s cute. Thanks, Tom!
