Bee In Flight


Sometimes an image grabs you.
The bee in flight here grabs me. 
It was accidental by the way. 
Me capturing this bee.



Swamp Hibiscus


Another Bee


I have no clue what flower this is but it is stunning.


Another hibiscus as large as a dinner plate.



Why don't I have planters like these? 

All images taken by me at the Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia S. C.

I party on the internet @ Potpourri Friday at 2805.

joy and peace

  7. Oh my gosh I thought I was in the wrong place. :o) Love the new header. I cannot believe the picture of the bee in flight. Just wonderful. Looks like you had a lovely day at the zoo. Hope it wasn't too hot. My power came on this afternoon so I hope to resume my life tomorrow. Thanks for your sweet comments. I loved them.

  9. Wonderful shot of the bee in flight. I can never seem to capture them. Of course I haven't been outside much lately because of the heat.
    The hibiscus is gorgeous.
