Outrunning the Sun

The day’s last flight,
outrunning the sun in a search for pollen,
a bladed bridge surrenders to a frozen leap.


A honey bee outruns the sun in a search for pollen

    Most captivating bee moment yet Rick! The detail, delicious. The wings, whimsical, legs like landing gear, easing down to a gracious landing. SWEET!

    Well, it’s not a bird but it is flying and bees are just as hard if not harder to get in flight shots of. Hmm, I need a judge to call tough shots like this. 🙂 Great shot.
