Bees deserve their own thread! :-) Especially since they are in trouble. There is debate on what caused the decline in honeybees about a decade ago but there is no doubt that all pollinators are in trouble, not just bees: https://www.nps.gov …ollinators-in-trouble.htm (external link)

Perhaps sharing photos of pollinators with family, friends, etc will help, in a small way, make people aware of the problem.

Here's a few to start:


This first shot was taken with an old Canon FD 50mm

Beautiful shots Michael. They are fun to photograph and usually in very colorful areas with the flowers as background. Looking forward to more!

Sure. :-) Perhaps even some wasps for variety? We'll keep the rules simple by not really having any. :lol::lol:
