[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After many unsuccessful, finally I have this one to post.
Early in the morning this bee was already loaded with pollens.
The flower in this picture is of Turneraceae family. Common names are Yellow Elder or Yellow Alder or Sage Rose. This sage rose is happen to grow at the property line so the background in this picture is painted brick wall.
