on the back porch, originally uploaded by pilgrimgirl.

This bee had the most intense rendezvous with one of my squash blossoms. He stayed at the flower for more than five minutes, never seeming to get enough of its pollen-y goodness. He didn't even mind when I brought the camera in for a close-up--he was far too involved to notice.

I have to say that I love seeing critters who look like they're having so much fun. Can't you just imagine that he was loving being covered from antenna to toe in yellow?
