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.

Great work for this week theme my friend,Thanks for this inspirational post on purple 🙂
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. 🙂
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.
wonderful compositions you captured with them, fascinated me dear TBM, Thank you. By the way I have nominated your blog for this award, Love, nia
Thanks Nia. How very kind of you. And congrats on your award. It is much deserved. I look forward to seeing your postings each day.
Glad you sacrificed your health to get a shot of these lovely purple flowers despite the bees. (smile) Wonderful shots for challenge. Looking forward to see your road entry.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
I really like the first photo!!
Pretty purple–love the bee, too. You are brave to face your enemy with a camera. 🙂
Trust me, I’m not that brave.
Beautiful foliage – and pics!
Purple: the color of wisdom!
I’ve never heard that, but I like it!
Sorry for the plus, I meant to put a smiley face.
No worries +
I m scared of bees…but your photos are beautiful as always 🙂
I’m fascinated by bees, but I hate when they get close. I really don’t want to use my epi pen.
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!
Butterflies are so hard…they just flutter away. I wish you luck.
At least he didn’t sting you! nice shots 🙂
He was way too busy doing his job.
Just trying to figure out what the flowers are – are they thistles??
That seems like a good guess, but I’m hopeless in this category.
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!
I wish I was better at identifying flowers.
Love how you captured that bee at work. 😉
He was busy!
Beautiful post!! Love the colours!!
