Hi Naomi- these are really fantastic photos, yo umust have a very good camera. while I am a little skittish around bees, I am fascinated by them and could watch them for hours.
I have the same problem with google videos, they take foreve to upload.
by the way, I left a message for you at the very bottom on one of my Jan 1st posts yesterday...
Good Wednesday morning to you, Naomi ! How are you doing ? Di Blogger finally complete uploading the video ?
You make bees interesting, and their tiny bounty in pollinating flowers a journey of discovery and grace !
Looking forward to all that you share this upcoming year 2008, and how interesting it is each time.
You are quite a woman and a person, Naomi. Even though it is just in cyber-space, I am pleased to know you. With this blog, your energy and range of interests has broadened my life, and your wise and kind comments have helped me in my own journey.
THANK YOU, and *blessings*...
Ah, more of your lovely bee pictures :) These are gorgeous as ever and really capture the 'busy-ness' of the bees going about their chores, feeding and business! LOL! They really do seem quite intent on those flowers.
I am looking forward to the return of insect life to the UK with the warmer spring weather so I can capture some with my new macro lens.
Looking forward to seeing your video when blogger finally co-operates!
Hey, Renny sent me! Have a wonderful 2008! Love, Kristie in Oslo, Norway
Beauitful photos, such details!!!
Wishing you a Very Happy New Year my dear friend!!!
Are these the same bees that you had in 2007? You must have a family of them that have laid claim to your plants......
I like picture #6 the best. I wouldn't have even noticed his wings had you not written about it...absolutely amazing! I love the little curly ends of those flowers too. You magnify nature & help us appreciate the most simple things in life. :)
What a wonderful way to start the new year...with the nature and beauty that surrounds you.
I really do love the little "eyeglasses" on the top of those blossoms!
Wonderful pics, Naomi! Sooo good to see you're still sharing with everyone. I have been away from blogging for a looong time. I'm happy to see you're still at it and still have your loyal friends here! :) I liked the holiday photos you shared, too. My friend has some great pics of your friend Dom from some years ago (he's a photographer). HAPPY 2008!!
Oh, how beautiful!!!
Happy New Year to you!! got back in one piece and Mr Mar is bringing a yellow envelope this evening :)
Okay you are making me miss going outside and taking pictures of nature. I am too cold to take much of anything right now. Actually this morning I tried a few and my batteries froze up!
Great pictures as always...
The bedding I found was by Eileen Fisher and it had some silk in the comforter but the blanket and pillow shams had cashmere! It was so pretty but way out of my league. Can you imagine the good times the cats would have on cashmere and silk? It wouldn't look too fresh for too long! lol.
Just looking at your bees and clicking on them I thought how - side ways - they have a look of a tasty, juicy prawn but I promise I won't attempt to eat them - crunchy though they may be. Don't mind me Naomi- January does something weird to my brain. Can you imagine day after day of dark gloomy murk? Can Spring be far away?
These are so amazing and clear! Something sweet to start the new year! WE can all use a bit of that! Keep snapping those great pics!
Thanks for coming back by my site and leaving a comment.
I noticed the "tour of homes" button on your sidebar. Is it a tour of homes for chirstmas? I am only asking because I am from Los Angeles as well, but moved to Norway and used to go on a tour of beautiful homes at achirstmas time. Just wondering!
Hopefully will see you around my site again sometime :) Kristie
Whew! I've spent a bunch of time here catching up! I've been missing your posts (along with everyone else's).
Your pictures today make me feel so nice and warm.
I should get busy with getting rid of bunches of old files, as you've been doing in posts below. I SHOULD...but will I?
I love your bee pictures.
I looked up bees on wiki - all worker bees are female. Drones are male and stay in the hive.
Good luck with the video. I only tried blogger video once and it was rubbish, so I went back to embedding YouTube videos.
News on Pandy at the Palace :-)
Bees, so wonderful photographed by you, the craddle of so much life, and one of your fav creatures - I'm thrilled every time you present them with such grace.
Thanks for sharing.
Your photos are beautiful, but more than beautiful, they are a lesson in how small things are where the pleasure is for us all and too often we miss all of that in our rush to the big things. Lovely
I see from craziequeen's comment that all bee workers are female. No wonder these bees are so busy and cute then!! If they were male bees they'd probably be sitting there doing nothing!! LOL
Wonderful pictures Naomi!! I just went back and saw the video of Sweetie again and hearing you sing Happy New Year!! I love that video!!
fantastic pictures of that hungry little stinger!
GREAT pics! Such detail.......I also love the warm feel to them given that it's bloody cold way up here.
I can't imagine there's a bee anywhere in the vicinity, unless they are captured frozen in a piece of ice.
I makes me feel warm seeing these pics.
Well, they make me feel all sweet and warm, which is hard because it's so cold here right now. I swear I could be typing this with gloves on.
It's -17C here ... way too cold for bees. Ha! But they were a nice reminder that summer is coming sometime.
Naomi, It will work with utube. And also with google video which is more private if you choose. All you need to do is to hit on the embed option. I tried it and it works.
