Camera Critter #105

It's only one image, but it's what I am truly waiting for...summer on the high desert.


I don't know the species of the sweat bee above, but I loved the coordinated colors of the shot the moment I saw it.

The high desert summers are almost as bland in color as the fall and winter. For the most part, there isn't a spring here...unless you count the migrating birds as proof of spring. It's late in the calendar version of spring that life begins to blossom here. Colors pop up in the dull brown backdrop all around...and those colors sparkle and jump out at a person.

I just can't wait for the explosion of color here.

I really like the colors in this shot too.

I hear ya about the colors - we've had that discussion a couple times. Here I am with gorgeous weather outside, and I'm more sick than I've been in a very long time. doesn't seem fair.

This photo has me ready for summer! Bring it on! That yellow is so warm and inviting-- to bees and humans as well!

What a lovely shot. It would be a sad world without the bees to pollinate the fruit trees. Valerie

You did luck upon a beautifully colour coordinated photograph.
I love to capture bees too, shows there's life in the garden.

Excellent. What a dreamy color. [Altho this wasp would make me deathly ill if it stung!!]

Here's My C C entry - hope you can come by for a visit if you find time.

Be sure to share the color explosion with us.

The bee did dress for the yellow flower, didn't she? Yellow is such a happy color, nice shot.
