I’m allegic to honey bees and generally stay away from them. When I was in my garden picking sunflowers for a scan I noticed this bee on the ground, dead as a doornail. Maybe all the work it had done collecting pollen had been too much, I don’t know. But look at all that pollen on its legs. This is one of two images in my portfolio that had an effect added. I selected the wings of this bee and gave them a motion blur in PhotoShop to make it look like it was in flight. The sunflower seems to be greeting the bee like an old friend.
