Partners in passion(flower)
I was setting up to photograph this passionflower early one recent dewy morning when a bee happened to land in the middle of my viewfinder. (Well, he actually landed on the flower — but you get the gist.)
I fired off a few frames and was preparing to pick up the tripod and move along when a second bee showed up on the same bloom, and began feasting at the same font, as it were. Neither bee showed any discomfort at the presence of the other, proving — I suppose — that bees are of an inherently gregarious disposition .
(Or that the lure of the passionflower is simply too great to resist.)
