Bee on a wildflower


The wind scatters some leaves upon the ground.
While others the burgeoning
Woods brings forth – and the season of spring comes on.

Homer. The Iliad.

My wife an I visited Descanso Gardens for the first time today. The place is amazing. I'm a Los Angeles native and I must admit, I had no idea this place was so magically beautiful. I'm constantly amazed at what this city has to offer.

I was shooting flowers with my 105mm Nikkor macro lens when I saw what my wife called “weeds” running alone the side a path in the upper reaches of the California Garden. They were in flower and alive with bees. I focused on the flower and was surprised to find a bee in my viewfinder. This is my favorite picture out of the 250 or so I took today.
