Phenomenal 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.

Phenomenal banner and subject! Words just do not adequately convey the beauty and purity of the bloom or its little guests. I could try, but I'd be here all night. It's best to just sit back and enjoy it like it is. Very well done Cal! Thumbs up

What a great group. Thumbs up
Thank you so much for all your encouragement.

Bees are so amazing. They work so hard, and give so
much back, not to mention being fun to watch.

I haven't been stung since I fired a BB at the hive on
the wall of our home when I was ~11. They chased me
and one got me on the eyelid. I was verrrry lucky.
I've respected them ever since. Smiling

Here is the 4.6mb image if anyone wants to see more details.
