The Great Spirit gave me a gift

The other day I was outside looking for photo ops and took many shots of Ally, no surprise there, right , and finally saw that my morning glories were still trying to bloom. They were on a trellis I had erected this past spring so I got myself into a position to take a shot ~~ mind you I only wanted A shot ~~ steadied myself and started to focus in on the 2 blooms that had interested me. Low and behold along came a big black bee, I'd already focused so all I had to do was click the shots. The funny thing I noticed when I uploaded the shots is that when this bee could not climb into the fragile bloom she found a different way to get to the nectar, I was amazed. Can you see what the bee did? I have tried to make a collage so you can see what I saw. Bees are so amazing, I just wish they weren't on the endangered list.

I've been watching these bees on and off for years. In the early part of this century they are much more abundant but they've declined severely as have most all other bees. I was as surprised as you, I never even knew they did that. Glad you like my shots.
