Busy As A Bee

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Spring must be here when bees are busy in our redbud tree.  I got this picture on a pretty Spring day last March.

It's snowing like crazy here this morning.

Bee got the news about spring much earlier than us.

It will probably be three or four weeks before I see this outside my window. Great close up shot.

Ms. A said...

Wow! I'm jealous as all get out of this shot! All your shots are fantastic, but I don't have the opportunity to see most of the things you capture. Bees, I have, but I've never been able to get a photo like this!

Carletta said...

Lovely George! You got a gorgeous background in this photo too.
My redbuds aren't showing a hint of blooming yet - too cold I guess.

Busy bee looks good in the pink flowers.

Gorgeous Spring photo!

Linda said...

A happy bee! Looking forward to some sunshine and lots of Spring blossom!

Ginny said...

And enlarge it I DID!! Wow George, WOW!!! A great capture! Now let me ask you....macro or zoom? It looks a bit like a carpenter bee, if so, you can get on top of it and it won't sting. BUT if it is a bumble, look out!

Great photo, George, I love a red
bud tree. Maybe this spring we should plant one.

Look out for that big bee...I think he will be back this year!

Tiago Braga said...

Annmarie Pipa said...

how perfect! we have 2 inches of snow on my new pansies!!

amanda said...

Thank goodness for bees!
Beautiful photo.. I think you confirmed my attempt at identifying a photo in my own recent post from our Texas trip. I wasn't sure, as we don't have "redbuds" here at home. Our photos reveal strong similarities and spring timing.. so I'm guessing redbud it is!

diane b said...

Hopefully the bees will be in your yard soon.

diane b said...

Together with spring, I mean.

teri said...

A red bud tree from last March you say? I am beginning to wonder if spring has forgotten us. Hoping soon you will send warmer weather from your hills. xo teri and thanks for the visit.

Faye said...

Redbuds are a surefire promise of spring in our part of the country. No signs of color yet. Like you, had to go back in the archives from last March to find them. What a contrast in March weather between 2012-13.
