I spotted a honeybee sipping from a worn out hyacinth plant today on my sunny deck. Odd to see this little guy on February 6, mid-Winter.
P.S. Susan L: This is NOT your bee! LOL

    What an eye you have! I had to open it up beyond the thumbnail to make out what was 'entangled' An unusual shot - I like it.
