Bees get it on with our Multiflora Roses in the best part of the day, just after dawn, before it gets too darned hot to do anything productive.
The Multiflora Roses (Rosa multiflora) were alive with the sound of buzzing this morning. Catch as catch can to get a focussed shot of one of their "gentleman callers." Like the fickle male humans they often stand metaphorically in for, the bumble bees and lesser bees of all stripes out there stopped but a moment at each new blossom before moving on to the next.
Out there trying to get the perfect bee shot, we stumbled onto this celebrity pic of the Babe just being his booful self in the early-morning delight with lots of birdsong all around.
Getting down to cases, later on in the day as things got hot and humid, Babe demonstrates #3 -- "Weather is steamy" -- on The Catfort Scale: Cat body and head are completely elongated and flattened into the profile of a fur rug.
