Springtime. Need we say anything else? The air is warm, and the breath of spring comes even to the higher elevations where this photo was taken. The bees were visiting this tree a lot, and Anna stood by it for two hours, trying to catch a moment when a bee would come to the flower. And it eventually did! A testament to the photographer’s patience and to some degree luck, this photograph shows you the purposeful approach of the little worker to the flower. She is laden with pollen, and she is busy visiting one flower after another. Before long she will be back on one of her thousands of trips to the hive. And then she will leave again, looking for more flowers, pollinating them and bringing the fruit for all of us in the fall.
This gentle photograph has a surprising array of colors in it. Suited equally well for a blue, red or pastel colored wall, it will look its best in a high gloss implementation. It will be difficult to print it larger than 16×20 but up to that size, it will look excellent. We have other motives of the spring fruit blossoms which, you may find, look very well together with the Bee and Blossom.
