Summer symbiosis.

Seems like every flower I've seen in the last week has one insect or another busily pollinating. One of the many things I love about summer.

I had holly bushes in South Carolina and when they bloomed they smelled wonderful -- and attracted bees by the truckload. Kinda neat seeing all those big fat bumblebees buzzing around.

I've always enjoyed bees and other pollinating insects. Some day I'd like to try my hand at beekeeping.

This is a good entry to point out Colony Collapse Disorder--the phenomenon that is impacting honey bees. Here's a post I did on it in my personal blog: http://anappalachianview.blogspot.com/2007/02/mystery-ailment-striking-honeybees.html

I love flower photos that include insects. I think it makes them more interesting. The bumblebee one is my favorite :)

dorky dad - It is neat - they are so industrious.

jeremy - I will definitely check that out - brings to mind that quote (Einstein?) about disappearing bees being the sign of a dying planet.

tammie jean - Thanks - that's my faborite, too.
