Mellow Yellow Monday


It;s Mellow Yellow Monday. Here is a very industrious bumblebee mining a huge St John's wort blossom. We found it on a very tall bush - never knew they grew more than two feet - at Knockreer House in Killarney, Ireland.

Drop in here for more lovely yellow photos.

I love the color of the blossom and your capture of the bee.

That bee is saying, "yummmmmmmmmmmm". His position is what we in the Air Force call, "heads down!" Nice photo.

That's a honey of a picture, or soon will be.

Nice shot. I never seem to have any luck capturing bees, although I keep trying.

Marvelous macro of this busy bee and beautiful yellow blossom! Thanks for dropping by HRG on Monday. I'm playing catch up belatedly today after a busy start of the week away from the computer ;--)
Hugs and blessings,
