Caught this bee in the middle of a poinsettia
showing off his bold stripes.

Taken with my Sony digital camera in Blacksmiths, NSW, Australia and only slightly cropped to centre the bee properly.

I am life time doodler, who has decided that it is time to see if anyone else likes my art. Here’s hoping!

I have had a go at writing, drawing, painting, graphic design, photography and digital creation & manipulation. Hope you enjoy my work. All encouragement appreciated.

I love helping RB newbies and sharing the hosting of a few groups.

    I have never seen a poinsettia this shade, how gorgeous~like the bee also, but the flower amazes me! Beautiful!

  • It was near a lake so maybe the soil had an effect on the colour.
    Thanks for you insightful comment
