Submitted for the Photo Friday theme, 'Active'


This bee (I believe it is a carpenter bee) was very 'Active' defending its territory/nest.




It is not how busy you are, but why you are busy - the bee is praised, the mosquito is swatted. ~Author Unknown


The pedigree of honey does not concern the bee, a clover, anytime, to him, is aristocracy. ~Emily Dickinson


To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,

One clover, and a bee,

And revery.

The revery alone will do,

If bees are few.

~Emily Dickinson, Poems


Aerodynamically the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn't know it, so it goes on flying anyway. ~Mary Kay Ash


For flowers that bloom about our feet;

For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;

For song of bird, and hum of bee;

For all things fair we hear or see,

Father in heaven, we thank Thee!

~Ralph Waldo Emerson
