Loaded Bee

I've been remiss about posting pictures of flowers and insects in my garden this year. Part of it may be chasing around three very mobile children. I only had two last spring and summer. Perhaps I was also chasing happiness last year. The bright, cheery flowers covered with bees and wasps and butterflies brought some cheer into my dark psyche.

I thought about this a few days ago, how I had not taken photos of the garden, and decided to change that. Except, a lovely young buck with velvety antlers gorged on the day lilies. At least the cone flowers were untouched. This small bee was loaded with pollen.
