Sunflower & Pollen
The sunflowers that have survived whatever animal chewing on our plants (perhaps for liquids?) are beginning to turn downwards due the the weight of the bloom. What is different about this one is the amount of pollen that fell upon the leaf right below it. Maybe I've just never noticed before that this happens and only now, when I am making an effort to notice my environment, did I see this beautiful shot. I really liked it. I had a friend in mind when I snapped this and she knows who she is so this one's for you J!
Along the same line with pollen, here is a look at what the bees have been bringing in lately.
When I looked at it, I noticed that the color has changed significantly than a couple of months ago. Notice there is more white colored pollen in the current collection and overall, it is a more subdued color. I wish I knew where these samples came from, that'd be pretty neat.
