This little bee was laden with pollen and had to rest for a while on the erigeron before setting back to the hive.
Have a great weekend, everyone Smile

What a lovely capture of a rather large looking bee. I think I prefer v2 as you can see more detail of it's 'face'? Grin

Somebody explained to me that by the laws of physics bees shouldn't be able to fly! But they do!
Does that mean all thing are possible for all of us?
Super images Carol and there's that lovely flower again which you introduced me to.
