The little honeybee was all in as she worked the center of the Globe Mallow, Sphaeralcea ambigua. Surrounded by glorious orange walls, with an extended garden of grey-green, she exhibited single-mindedness toward her important pollination work.
As I watched, she crawled around the pollen-laden center of the bloom, oblivious to me and anything else that might disrupt her concentrated efforts. Her movements were frenzied, focused solely on the pistils of the flower.
Eventually, she worked her way out of her orange office, flew to another bloom, pollen grains speckled on her various parts.
Celebrating her dedication to task, I’m joining in with Anna and her Wednesday Vignette. Check out her beautiful Flutter and Hum for musings of various sorts.
