This photograph is one of many preparing to retire from the Alaina Ann Photography gallery.
While on the hunt for wildflowers in Arizona, I came across a small area filled with fiddleneck. The bees LOVED this spot. And I, naturally, loved the little yellow flowers.
Carefully navigating my way through the blooms, I found a patch that missed out on the flower growth that spring. A perfect place for my little body to curl up and capture photographs :)
As the bees buzzed around, seeming to care very little that I was in the middle of the flowers, I snapped away. Hoping to capture a bee enjoying a tiny bloom, this little guy gave me what I was looking for.
I am pleased to say I survived the experience with no bee stings AND have a lovely memory of sitting in the flowers for a morning.
