Wings, photo by Harold Davis. View this bee in a larger size!

Yesterday I picked Julian up from school and took him to his appointment with his reading specialist, Harriet. Harriet lives near the Berkeley Rose Garden, so while Julian was in-session I wandered around the Rose Garden taking pictures with an abbrievated kit.

This bee seemed to be on her last legs. Probably, thing are getting too cold for her, even in coastal California. I love the shimmer of her wings, and what looks like a fur muff.

Photographed hand-held with my Lens Baby macro setup, cropped but otherwise no special post-processing.
