The Littlest Rose

~ Miniature Heirloom Rose and Friend ~

When trying to capture images of blossoms on the heirloom rose bushes I was gifted many years ago from my grandmother's old gardens, I was surprised when I discovered this little bee taking shelter from the rain under the petals. I do not know the name of these very hardy, extremely thorny bushes, but despite the pain they inflict when weeding around them, I still love them. Their roses are adorable, measuring just a wee bit over 1 inch when fully opened, and their scent is heavenly! Being so small, twas not much shelter for the bee!

Nature Glows

Under the Forest Canopy

Glowing Rose Bud

I love how leaves and flower petals seem to glow when illuminated from the sun's rays!

Buffalo Herd Babies

~ Buffalo herd with their new calves ~

The herd is very protective of their little ones and keep at a distance. When I first appeared with the camera, 6 adults immediately came forward to form a barrier between the herd and myself. When they saw I posed no threat, they slowly rejoined their herd mates.
