Bee with a Gentian flower...

Just a bit of whimsy...

 

I was finishing up getting shots of the beautiful fall wildflowers along the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina, when I saw this bee frantically (did I say frantically?) flitting from flower to flower searching for a reward. Whatever the reward was, it must have been good, since the bee valiantly struggled with entering these normally closed flowers. I must have spent a half hour trying to catch it in the act. The bee was so fast that by the time I was able to position the camera and obtain focus, it was out and heading to another flower...
