Butterfly and Bee

I spent some time among the prolific fireweed at the Harriet Alexander Nature Center. This remarkable monarch stayed in close proximity to me for almost a minute allowing me to photograph her up close. I love that she's lost a piece of her wing. I'm not sure why she gave me the gift of trust. Perhaps because she's nearing the end of her life.

The bees were harder to capture because they had a job to do and no time for a silly woman with a camera. I worry a lot about the news of bees disappearing and the impact that will have on our ability to grow fruits and vegetables. So when I see bees at work, I try to send a lot of positive energy their way for their survival as a species.
