Hollyhock in Rain – tired of winter, now

Hollyhocks in Rain

Now that we have a nice bit of snow on the ground (relatively speaking), it’s warm enough to melt it off the streets.

    1. Thank you. The hollyhocks grow like weeds, here, popping up all over the yard, now, 20 years after planting them. I do love the flowers, though, and the honey bees are pleased with them. The honey bees are starting to come back, but there still are more wild bees; all that’s missing now are the big bumblebees. I am hopeful that they will reappear, one of these years. They really love the hollyhocks.

      That’s another subject that requires lots of standing still (in addition to the fallen/falling leaves): bees flying from one bloom to the next, I should dig one out. I know I have (erm . . . ) hundreds of photos of bees in hollyhocks. I use the macro function, usually, and sometimes the super-macro.

      1. I love photographing bees & use the macro function on my lens – apparently it’s called a close-ip. Not real macro. But yes, the standing still and the waitinff and then the frantic focusing 😀
