Bee Hive Sunrise: LadyD Books

Bee Hive Sunrise

 On some mornings, I find the sky having a golden glow or golden bronze look. This awesome stack of cloud cover was taken with my Nikon D200 around 5:00 a.m., looking out at Palomar Mountain towards the east. Looks like it's going to be a lovely Spring day with temps in low 80s for sunny Cali.

How is it where you are? For more glorious views, I'm linking with Skywatch Friday.

Be swarm: LadyD Books
Protected  Queen Bee

Around this time of year, especially when the avocado grove is blossoming, we'll hear and look up and see bees swarming. One particular morning, I found this bee hive had landed nearby on my property with one goal in mind... and that was to protect the queen! They were working hard to lay eggs and make honey, too. The photo theme this week is 'texture' and I'm linking with Foto Friday.

For ages 10 and up

Honey. Beeswax. Pollinate. Hive. Colony. Work. Dance. Communicate. Industrious. Buzz. Sting. Cooperate.
Where would we be without them? Where would we be without one another?
In eighty-two poems and paragraphs, Naomi Shihab Nye alights on the essentials of our time—our loved ones, our dense air, our wars, our memories, our planet—and leaves us feeling curiously sweeter and profoundly soothed.

"Honeybees have been hauled all over agricultural creation by their owners in wooden hives to pollinate flowers far from the ones they grew up with."

Eventually, the honeybees took off and this was left behind; a structure of hexagonal cells of wax, made by the bees.

Stop by these fine folks, if you have the time.

Have a sweet day!
