The Birds and the Bees


When I was at the Desert Botanical Garden last Sunday, I spotted a lesser goldfinch munching on the blooms on a tree.  I don't see that many of these so I was happy that I spotted this one.


These two doves were basking in the early morning sunshine.


And the bees were all gathered around to enjoy the blooms on the very tall Cardon cactus.
Nature's creatures rise early to enjoy the fruits of the garden.

Those bees definitely look like they are enjoying the cactus.
