Clematis and the Bee

Clematis Orientalis with bee 3_with frame

I spotted this bee in the Clematis Orientalis today.  This clematis is a very vigourous grower.  It has formed a large vine on the arbour by the deck and is now just loaded with bloom.  I was just attempting to take a macro shot of the flower when along came the bee. I shot away until I got a good capture.  

I will be joining Laura at Blogging from Bolivia for Macro Friday.   This is the labor day weekend for us in Canada. The children will be going back to school on Tuesday.  Fall is fast approaching.   Enjoy the end of summer holidays. Valerie

What a great shot - you captured this bee/flower combo perfectly.

You just can't plan these things - you have to be there!

Great capture, don't you just love it when something else appears in the viewfinder and you get that unexpected capture. Have a great long weekend.

Oh, I love this flower! I'm always on the prowl for more clematis. How tall does it grow? I like to plant them at the base of young trees so I need them to be rather tall...

Hi Val
Great macro of the bee and I like the frame around it.
