Today's Flower # 78 - Visitors

My friend Luiz from Brazil does the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 2 GMT is the post time.

Today is a mixture of flowers and visitors to the blooms. Here is a Bumblebee and a beetle on the flower.
The little spider wanted to get in on a visit.

Here we have a Honeybee gathering some nectar.
The final visitor turned out to be a leaf, how did it jump up here?

There are a lot of great flowers at the above site.

Looks good. I don't mind the flower visitors except when they are really hungry.

Carletta said...

These are all beautiful Tom; but that first one is an excellent catch of both flower and bee!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Great bunch of flowers --and their critters, Tom... Can't wait 'til spring so we can see some of them LIVE right here in our yard...

Take care and don't get out in all of that snow.

Tom, what beautiful shots, the colors are so sharp and clear! And I like your choice of topic today. Some of my favorite pictures are of bees and butterflies and other bugs and spiders on flowers and plants. Very nicely done! ~karen

Just whats needed FG, some bright and cheerful colours!

In answer to the Mallard photo question. I followed the birds as they took of, the camera is set to continuous shoot mode.

Gaelyn said...

I so love seeing these colorful blooms, and their tiny visitors, especially on a cold day when we might get a little snow. That new camera is really paying off for the macros Tom.

Lots of lil critters on these pretty flowers! It's snowing here today, so no flowers will be blooming anytime soon!

Craver Vii said...

It's great to see these flowers. I left the house a little later today and the sun shone bright. It almost felt like early spring. I do not kid myself though, because we're in for about twelve inches of snow tomorrow.
