A few hours of sunshine at the end of the year, the heather is in bloom, so a quick trip to the meadow found me photographing the only inhabitant of the heather, a few bees.

More great images. That's heather? I have never seen a macro of it before, when you see flowers up that close it can be very surprising. Nice to see a bee Carol, I have almost forgotten what they look like with the cold we are having.

So nice that the bees are still active there. Nothing much is active here! Lovely, cheering images.
