Flowers everywhere

An iris with a bee hard at work - I love taking pictures of flowers. I have my camera lense set on macro. I did not know it at the time but I got a bee hard at work

I love spring and I love to take pictures of flowers. Here is a picture of an iris I took in Oregon at yet another rest stop on my trip. I got a bee doing its bee thing.

One of the first jokes I remember my dad telling me, I was probably four or five. We were at the park and he smelled the flowers and goes "wow, there was a blower (bl-ow-er)" and I said "Dad, there's not a "B" in flower" and he goes, "there was in that one!" pinching his nose so his voice sounded funny.

That is a lovely shot! I bet you were surprised to see the bee once you got it on screen! I really like irises as well. I have some blue ones in my garden but they seem to be mutating. They started off as blue with a little yellow, but over the years the colony is throwing up irises that have more and more yellow on them. It is strange, but lovely none the less!

they are getting old just like us and instead of going grey they are going yellow. LOL
