Coming in for a landing

There are a few flowering pear trees still blooming around town.  When I took this shot, I had no idea there was a bee approaching the cluster of flowers.

He looks to be coming in for a landing!

I think you should take credit for that well planned shot of the arrival of the bee.

I think that your photo illustrates what might be an ancient Chinese proverb: "Better to be unaware of a bee landing on a flower than to become aware of a bee that has landed on you."

The bee is perfect here! Makes the shot look even more beautiful.

Serendipity works every time. I love the light in this shot...makes the petals look as though they were molded of silver. Just beautiful. The bee is an added bonus!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

You know, the other day I saw pear blossoms for the first time on Ramblin' Kathy's blog. I didn't even know we had them here. Nice catch of the bee!

I love life's little surprises! It is a beautiful photo all the way around.

I know you understand the difficulties of keeping things dry while trying to shower with an injury. I hope your hand is better now. While I was in the emergency room with my broken foot, my son was in another emergency room getting seven stitches in his finger. Really we're not a family of klutzes. Honest! :)

Aw, c'mon, we all know that you planned this!

Randy said...

Don't you just love surprises like this. Great capture!

Kate said...

Terrific capture. It's always great to have an unplanned surprise!

Nice shot Sharon. Aren't those little surprises wonderful - seeing something in a photo you didn't expect.
