Incredible banner Cal!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thank you. Smiling

Glad I could capture these.....the sunlight was diffuse
and the blooms acted like fill lights.

You are welcome to save any of them, but this is
my favorite, and what I set as the background on my laptop. ;)

That is a cool photo... I had to come look just to see what the flower was. Very nice!
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Thank you so much everyone, for all the kind comments, acorns, & thumbs. Smiling

It's very rewarding to be able to capture the moment & be able to share it with you.
The miracle of digital photography. Thumbs up

The magnolias are still blooming, and the bee hive is just 30 ft away from them,
so hope to get more pics. Smiling

Later...... just took the most beautiful closeup video of the bees
greedily gathering pollen from the magnolia bloom...... Sighing!

But I didn't realize I had failed to press the button. D'Oh! D'Oh! D'Oh!

Just went back, but now the light is harsh, and there was
only one bee instead of 5. Crying

So will try earlier tomorrow or later when the clouds return,
and post YouTube video asap. Crossing Fingers! Smiling Crossing Fingers!

ยก Muchas gracias, Mutisia! Smiling

This is the first time I have taken video of the
bees on the magnolia. I wish I had years ago.

It's this amazing community of gardeners & nature lovers that
has inspired me to look closer to see the details I've been missing. Smiling
