Nothing great was ever achieved
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
There is some serious greatness happening in my sedum, because these are some crazy enthusiastic bees. Busy, busy, busy. Grubbing down. It’s exhausting to watch.
I can’t get over the bees’ tongues! I only just discovered this year that bees even had tongues. Stupid, I know, but I never really thought about it.
This isn’t sedum, I don’t even know if it’s a weed or what. But here’s another shot of my favorite (for now) bug- the beautifully colored green metallic sweat bee- click on the picture to see the colors close up.
And here he is alongside a normal-sized bumble bee. Look how tiny! All that craftmanship and loveliness bestowed upon such a small thing. The wonder of the universe.
Where the telescope ends,
the microscope begins.
Which of the two has the grander view?
