My Backyard Prairie

To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee
Emily Dickinson
1755

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.

    These photos are wonderful Pat, and they truly make me smile. This weekend, I tried in vain to capture the same thing (bee on a clover flower). I followed one bee from flower to flower. Just could not get one I liked!

    Thank you so much for sharing these today at The Creative Exchange.

    Have a wonderful day!

    I just took pictures of the exact same kind of flower yesterday! I don’t know if it’s just a weed or what. It gets mowed over regularly, but upon closer inspection, it is truly beautiful! Lovely images!

    That was an awesome capture, Pat!
    I love it! I don’t have a clover but there are bees around so maybe I can have my own prairie 😉

    With that first shot you make clover a beautiful flower. 🙂

  8. Love the bee shot – great capture!
