A Busy Bee In My Garden.

I was watering my plants when this bee flew past me and settled on one of my Yellow Buttercup flowers. 
I quickly placed down my water hose and took out my smartphone from my pocket.
It was not an easy target because it kept flying from one flower to the next.
When it came to a flower, it dipped its head into the throat of the flower and then flew to the next flower. 
 It was busy flying from flower to flower and I was busy taking snapshots of it.

Plant your seed in the morning and keep busy all afternoon,
for you don't know if profit will come from one activity or
another - or maybe both.
(Ecclesiastes 11:6, New Living Translation-NLT)
 I found this pigeon looking for food scraps at one of the food stalls.
 We were visiting a close family friend and her neighbour's dog came over to the fence to take a look.
 She started to bark at us.
It stopped for a while.
She started barking at us again on our way out to the car.

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

  9. We have buttercups in our yard! That is a huge bee! And you are so brave to get this close! He was probably only interested in the flowers, but I have had bees chase me when I am trying to snap them. The pictures are so good! You will brave a lot for your posts!

    1. Initially I was wary of the bee as it flew quite near to me. But I noticed it was too busy with the flowers and didn't bother about me. And I forgot about the danger. Lol!

  17. Good pics of that bee!

    Come to think of it, I haven't seen that kind of chain-link fence separating houses after my Ipoh days. KL seems to prefer walls.

    1. Thank you, Stacy. We still see a lot of the chain link fencing here in Ipoh but the new houses are opting for concrete walls.
