Manzanita Bees

I planned on not blogging this weekend to give myself a break. Oli and I went on a hike and took our cameras along in the hopes of spotting a bear. Instead we found this beautiful Manzanita in bloom with dozens of bees collecting its pollen. I can't resist sharing some of our pretty pictures.

  1. How sweet that Oliver gets right in there and takes pictures too!

  2. Lovely photos, Jess! I bet the bees were having fun too ;-)

    Have a great day!

  3. Beautiful photos, Jess! Way to teach Oliver to not only enjoy but also document the outdoors!

  4. The white berries are lovely. Great to see the bees are still foraging.

  5. In case we don't connect tomorrow, Jess, I want to wish you and your family (and pets) a very Happy Thanksgiving!

    Doris :-)

  6. Nice pics. I just captured some bees on our Manzanita with my little camera. I've yet to figure out who they get into those tight flower openings to extract the nectar.
