bee says hello to blueberry

It took me twenty patient minutes to convince this bee to pose for me.  All weekend our blueberry bushes literally hummed with flitting pollinators, each far to busy for a camera shoot.  I am going to stitch this bee’s portrait, maybe even leave it for him at the base of the blueberry bush, a token of my gratitude.  Thank you bee, for all the good work you do!
