Was mostly breezy, so am thankful for this bit of calm while I captured this bumblebee. Distance to flower was 10-15 feet, so was happy with this deep crop.

Turn around
Look at what you see...
In her face
The mirror of your dreams...

I hear Suzie-poo and Dusty-bun singing in Stranger Things, the NeverEnding Story and hoping the Monarchs will survive. Been hoping to get a shot like this all year and rarely see Monarchs and sun and have one that sticks around.

Two for one. These bees loved this giant sunflower. I think one stayed in it all night.

Last year I had monarch catepillars. This year, no monarchs, nothing. Sadness.

Wow. Have seen them a time or two, but either did not have a camera, or not fast enough to capture one. Nice job.
