Finally. It took a couple days for my first (and so far only) Great Sunflower Project bloom to get the attention of the local bees, but today they finally came a calling and made up for lost time while I had my camera set up beside it.

You’ll have to forgive me for remaining so perpetually enchanted by what might be considered such a commonplace or even mundane thing. One reason is because I had a hand in bringing the flower to its present state and thus the bee to it, too. But the bigger picture is that I take much joy in the creation of nature, especially in a world so full of its destruction.
