If I were a bee, I’d see this view every day, over and over, drunk with joy and pollen.  I wouldn’t need an iPhone camera.  I’d have my wings.

  3. What a beautiful macro shot.. Have a good Monday, Janet..

  4. Janet, the quotes are great, and the photo is spectacular. You started off Monday with a bang. 🙂

    • Good morning, Judy. I’ve dug your comment out of my spam folder and wonder why you were put there with the porn and psychic links. :-0 Glad you liked the photo and have a wonderful Monday. 🙂

  5. Joanne Sisco says:

    I love that Emerson quote!

  6. A stellar view to be sure…text, quotes and image are a lovely combination. Happy Photo Challenge.

    • Thanks very much, Sally. Had a wet but good few days in Philly and we’re now back home enjoying just a bit of sun before we get more rain later today. Have a wonderful Monday.


  7. If flowers are the laugh, are bees the giggles? (We’re watching for bees – the honey bees visited all winter, but seeing more red wasps now…and watching for those new nests UGH)
    Great flower, girl.

  8. To bee or not to bee 🐝
    That is the brilliant question
    For this astounding image.

    Nice captured. I find it a challenge to take an interesting photo with my mobile. Do you like it to see it then click on my page on ‘Mobile shots’.

    • Quite a few of the photos on my blog are taken with my iPhone 6s. I have a Nikon also, which I really need to learn to utilize better. But I think the phone does rather well and I like that I can take it with me everywhere and every day.
