This is one of many photos I shot while working in Guerneville. I have several with bees on these flowers and this is very detailed activity by the bee. I was able to catch the bee in the act of sucking nectar. You can see the massive amount of pollen on the flower. The color mix of violet, yellow and green is a good example of natures artistic presence. I'm in the process of using this photo as model for a new painting.
