Incredible banner Baja!
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.

Great image, Baja. contrast of color & form. And besides just liking bees, they add
a way to gauge the size as well. Thumbs up

Here is the whole plant:
