[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A pine tree in full flower attracted some bees to the nectar. Here this bee was so busy collected the sweet nector it did not notice the camera only a few inches away from it. The tree was a mass of blooms, something which seems to last only a week or so each season. After this the soft flower becomes a hard pinecone by the look of it.

Hi Muray!
your pine blossom can attract anybody's attention - not only that of the bee. Exc. macro with beautiful colors and focus.
Good job!

Hello Murray,
The lines created by the grass make an intriguing pattern!
Fresh strong colours, and a cone in blossom is something I normally don't notice!
