Bees Love Thistles - Missoula, Montana

Okay, maybe it's a little weird, but I sometimes like to watch bees about their business. They are just so very... busy! But in all my flower stalking (haha! get it?!), I haven't seen a bee as engaged as with this thistle. No dip-and-zip off to the next bloom for this little guy - he had clearly found a honey-love and was going to stay with it until he'd mined every pokey petal! In truth, I buzzed off before the bee, who was undeterred by my close-in camera ogling. High marks there for focus and perseverance, which was just the inspiration I needed this week on a couple thorny (snort!) tasks! So, go bee awesome! (Okay, my corniness is done here.)
