The Butterfly and the Bee

B&B-1For all you folks who can’t wait for this cold winter to end, hopefully this photo will bring some warmth. Although you physically can’t feel the heat of these warm and hot colors from this picture, maybe you can feel it mentally. The 90 + degrees of the hot summer scorching heat attracts this butterfly and honeybee to share the pollen from the pistil of this mid summer flower. Usually the bee is territorial and will burn more energy to do all his acrobatic stunts to buzz the butterfly away. Since it’s just too hot to move maybe the bee knows it is cooler if he shares.
