Say hello to my little friends
Who quietly keep this earth alive and, quite literally, humming.
A few shots of some members of the order Hymenoptera from around the property this morning. Most are getting pollen-drunk on our male English holly (yes— English holly have male and female plants and they need to be in proximity to make those beautiful red berries for Christmas decorations!)
The first shot is one of the mountain laurel we planted along the edge of the back woods last year.
Nature is my drug of choice!!
