Hearing and reading about the loss of birds and insects made me appreciate what this bee is doing with all the pollen collected on it's "knees".  I was thrilled to find several of these beauties in my wildflower garden.

This is lovely, Cindy. The pollen on the knees is awesome, and the background texture works beautifully. The pose on the blossom is excellent. In fact, it appears this would do well in the Floral & Macro Gallery. A killer title which is backed up perfectly by the image. Wow. :D

Lovely image, Cindy!  It shows the pollen sacs off perfectly while the little bee works on the dreamy blossoms.  :)
