If the iron be blunt, and he do not whet the edge, then must he put to more strength; but wisdom is profitable to direct. Ecclesiastes 10:10

A bee leaving spittle
On a flower petal
E'en though little~
Whets its own knowledge
To sharpen the edge...
Poetry by me, AJP

I caught this honey bee on the edge of a yellow daffodil with my camera before it flew away to another flower.

The bees were working over time today...perhaps because they might have heard we are predicted to have snow in the forecast on Wednesday ...The good news is that our Daffodils come later in the season and they bloom until May.

Macro/ Focal length 300 mm
F-Number f/18
Exposure time 1/400
ISO 800
Manual Focus.

Thank you Linda Houghton for the spotlight!
