Bees & Flowers at Pierce College, May 2011

Los Angeles Pierce College has a large, well-tended garden with cacti, native flora, and a small lily pond.  It’s like a miniature Huntington Gardens.  They also have some of the friendliest bees I’ve seen.

    These could not be lovelier if they tried.

    Which is exactly the point, isn’t it? They’re not TRYING. They’re not fussy.

    Love the bee in the purple flowers.

    I’m happy to see the bees. We must cherish them for without them, there would be few flowers and/or fruits (if any). Beautiful pictures.

      Thanks, Edith, bees make me happy, too! And we must cherish them especially with the colony collapse disorder that has decimated bee populations in North America and Europe.

    Excellent photos John. Some outstanding color contrasts and photo framing.

    Stunning photos, John!!! You have captured “The Flight of the Honey-Bee” not once, but twice, and, with jaw dropping color to support the action! (The bee’s abdomen looks almost translucent in the scene with the yellow flowers.)

    Just beautiful, ….. ALL of these pictures!!! I have a profound respect for your use of color and composition, John! Thanks once again for posting your excellent work!!!
