Artist's Description

A bee on a mission to collect more poppy pollen! I captured this moment at a local (Long Beach, CA) community garden that insists on organic growing methods and the encouragement of beneficial insects. They have an entire section (uncultivated) devoted to wildflowers that are allowed to grow freely, primarily to attract beneficial insects like this bee. The flower is a California poppy (Eschscholzia californica), the state flower of California, which is a perennial in its southern range and a most welcome sign of spring when masses of orange flowers spring to life along roadsides, most notably in the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve. (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 70-300mm zoom at 300mm [600mm in full-frame 35mm equivalent], f/6.3, 1/640 sec., ISO 100, handheld, midday sun)
