two bees on sunflower-2

One reason I love taking pictures in the garden is that it teaches me to see things I would ordinarily miss, and to see them in new ways. I had a lovely time watching these bees and taking pictures of them. The sunflower is the result of the bird feeders that I have hanging above off the end of our patio.

The bee on the top of the flower appeared to be taking a little nap, while the bottom bee was working its little bee-butt off (and occasionally bumping into the top bee to get it to move out of its way). I even took a video of the bees with my camera (the first time I’ve tried doing that), and it worked surprisingly well, even though I was a little shaky.
