Wild Roses and a Bee

This gentle little bee's pollen baskets are about full. So busy and determined as she went from rose to rose to rose.

The careful insect 'midst his works I view,
Now from the flowers exhaust the fragrant dew,
With golden treasures load his little thighs,
And steer his distant journey through the skies.
