Corner {Flora} View

A bee visiting the FLORA ... a lemon flower ... on my back patio.
If you look closely, you'll see little bits of yellow pollen all over him !!
(or her ... but how do you tell?)


Corner View was created by Jane at Spain Daily and is now hosted by Francesca.  It is bloggers from all over the world, posting photos of a specific weekly theme.  To join, just post to your own blog and then link up over at Francesca's Corner View for the week.  Then, visit the other Corner Views ... that's my favorite part !  Seeing the interpretations of the themes, visiting different cultures, learning something new !

Lemon blossoms have a special name in Italian (ie they're not simply called the blossom of a lemon tree, but have a I'm-so-special-that-I-deserve-my-very-own-taxonomy name ... hmm, is this clear at all?!)

What a great shot! I'm too slow of a photographer to get good ones like this.

Oh, I love lemon flowers and bees with pollen: there is something magic about it all!

Love his (or her?) wings, so thinly veiled against the background. Good shot!

Great photo! So cute with the pollen all over! Reminds me of a child noshing cookies or ice and spreading the food all over the body at the same time... ;o)

I love,love, love insect photos. They are so hard to capture because they move so abruptly and unexpectedly, but they tell such a story. Yours is incredible. :)
