The Bees Are Truly Busy...

While out walking Casey this morning, we noticed that the bees are really busy gathering pollen from the many flowering plants that line the cottage road.


I especially love this shot of a bee inside one of the hollyhock blossoms in our friend's cottage garden.


We also saw this Monarch butterfly, but it wouldn't cooperate and let me get a shot with wings spread.

I hope you are enjoying the many beautiful sights of summer where you are too!
