Walking around the garden one last time, as the sun was setting, I found a bumblebee clutching the first Moonflower of the season, anticipating its opening.
Motionless, he patiently waits for the flower to unfurl.
Perhaps he can smell its sweetness. Perhaps some special memory urges him to wait, anticipating good things to come.
Oh to have the focus, the faith, and the patience of this little one.
What treasures might wait for us, also?

That’s like the insect world’s Candid Camera! Amazing catch.;)
😉 Thank you- a fun way to put it. There is always something interesting to observe whenever we venture out to the garden- Best wishes, WG
Focus, faith and patience – I could always use more of that! I hope she didn’t have to wait too long!
She was still there hours after the photo was taken… but gone by the next morning. Soon the vine will be covered in Moonflowers, and the bees won’t need to que up 😉
That is a wonder filled photograph of the bee and your narrative – your thoughts on its anticipation are heart warming. I needed to wake up to such joy. Thanks.
It is all around you 😉 Thank you for visiting Forest Garden today 😉 Best wishes, WG
Ah, the nectar of divinity ~ Bumblebee wishes for a long frog’s tongue. 😉 Cool shots, E!
