“…The world was really one bee yard, and the same rules work fine in both places. Don’t be afraid, as no life-loving bee wants to sting you. Still, don’t be an idiot; wear long sleeves and pants. Don’t swat. Don’t even think about swatting. If you feel angry, whistle. Anger agitates while whistling melts a bee’s temper. Act like you know what you’re doing, even if you don’t. Above all, send the bees love. Every little thing wants to be loved.”
― Sue Monk Kidd
A wonderful little honey bee, enjoying the fun little yellow coreopsis in my garden last summer. Original photographic image taken with the then-new D7000 and the 105mm Nikon / Nikkor micro/macro lens. Editing and experimenting in several Photoshop versions, Capture NX2 and a lovely texture from 2 Lil Owls.
