What is it about poppies and bees? They go absolutely mind-lost crazy tumbling over each other to get to the pollen around the center edges of the flower. Always a good show to watch! :)

A particularly delectable flower, I think! The skippers do the same around here. Too few flowers, so little time!

WOW! Three bees on one flower, and all of them sharp with excellent detail and clarity, not to mention the vivid eye-popping color of the poppy! We've had almost no butterflies this year to speak of and so I have focused on bees - have found them much harder to shoot than I thought - they don't stay still for a moment! This is an amazing capture!

My bet is one the third bee who is going to gather all the pollen while the other two duke it out! :-) Love the wonderful composition and the gorgeous virbrante colors Val!
