Pacific Northwest Bees
I just spent a week kayaking in Puget Sound, Washington. We camped for three days on Jones Island, a tiny state park island in the San Juan Islands group. A beautiful spot to hike, relax, paddle to and from....and watch bees! My camera is rudimentary: so-so zoom and no macro, but I did get these shots of the most adorable fuzzy bees noshing on the wild thistle flowers. (Also, yellow jackets.)
I bought some wild flower honey from a woman in Medina (Bill Gates neighborhood of Seattle) and I don't know if it came from virtual bees or what, but I was very disappointed in the taste (blah). Came home and bought some of Kirk's. Give me Lake View Terrace any day!
