The bees were in a frenzy this day....I usually am pretty nervous around bees, I am allergic.....but they weren't worried about me at all!! I loved the sun on the white petals......
And where would we be without our honeybees in the food chain....or friut....or any pollination process!!!

    Such a beautiful picture, Betty...I think I am almost more afraid of hornets than I am of bees after being stung a few years ago ten times on the side of my head by a mad hornet...The bees leave me alone when they are busy pollinating flowers but hornets and wasps are vicious!

    Passion flowers blooms are so beautiful. This is an excellent capture with great lighting and I too really like the fringe shadow on the bloom. Excellent work! I agree with Andrea about the bees and wasps, I have found wasps to be very vicious, one stung me on the back of my hand multiple times, my hand puffed up like a balloon and was very painful. Bees leave me alone except for a big bumble bee one day came at me, I ran and it was right behind me, I ran right into the bar-b-q grill and the bumble bee stung me on the top of my head! I think that I inadvertently got near its nest and it was protecting the nest because the bumble bees in our yard have never bothered me except this one time.
