Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Dorothy Williams

While visiting a botanic garden, I became fascinated by the organized efforts of bees in the large magnolia blossoms, where stamens were carefully cut out and organized in the petals below. This energetic bee appears to be dragging a "log sized" stamen into place as part of the pollination activity.

Location: Palos Verdes Peninsula, California, USA
