Artist's Description

Such a happy pair: a foraging honeybee on a fragrant California lilac (Ceanothus species, also known as Mountain Lilac), a drought-tolerant California native that thrives with little attention after it is given good irrigation in its first year in the garden. In the wild, it is a dependable spring bloomer and bee attracter. Depending on variety, these shrubs can bloom anytime from February to mid-summer, with flower colors varying from blue to purple to white. (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 35mm macro, f/5.6, 1/125 sec, ISO 400, open shade, handheld; May 2014)
