The Beauty of Nature, and then some. :)

These pictures were taken in my back and front yard. It's REALLY sunny here in this part of California.

Do you see it?

How about now? Know what it is? No, I didn't get that close. I zoomed first, when I took the picture, then cropped it.

Is it better to see now? It's a bee. A huge bee. That red oval is highlighting the hole it was heading to. Those bees are carpenter/bumble bees that EAT WOOD. And they made a nest right in my backyard. In that decaying tree trunk.


  1. It's nice how you gave us pictures of trees and nature:)

    My dad's dad used to keep bees. I think we still have some of his honey somewhere . . . Or maybe not. He's dead now:( Buty dad still likes bees and honey and stuff .
    . Wasps are horrible though.

    1. I'm sorry to hear about your dad's dad(your grandfather). I'm okay with bees, but I agree that wasps are horrible.

      And thanks. These were taken in my front and backyards. I've got lots of trees growing. Some of them are even fruit trees. :)
