Weekly Photo Challenge: Purple

Last night on my walk I saw these purple flowers. The bees were quite busy and were kind enough to pose for some photos.

This guy had enough of me.

      Thanks Jake. Since getting back from vacation I’m trying to get back into the swing of the weekly competitions. I’m looking for a photo for the Sunday post.

    Love the soft lilac of the flowers. Bees generally don’t like me – they always rush away when I come near. πŸ™‚

      Bees love me for some reason. When I sit on my balcony they always buzz around me and they make me nervous since I’m allergic. I’ve had a few stings that have made me quite ill, but nothing too serious.

  10. Great shots. I’ve been trying to get some butterfly shots but they seem to sense the minute I have my camera out and fly away. I’ve been looking for some photo challenges to join. Have to check this one out!

    It’s great that they cooperated, at least for the most part! Interesting flower. I don’t know what it is, but the purple is lovely!
