Thanks so much, Damian, Kay and Jill! I really appreiate you taking the time to look and comment.

Jill, these were shot at Hodges Gardens, a private park in west central Louisiana. I shot this a couple of months ago, but with everything going on in south Louisiana, I haven't gotten around to uploading it yet. There were lots of lilies in this particular little pond and ALL of them were brimming with bees! I had to clone some out of this image.....5 or 6 bees in each flower wasn't all that attractive! #1956547
