Bees and Mallow Blossoms

An excellent combination.

Except I think this bee may be mooning me. Click on the photo to enlarge.

This bee looks like she’s just starting her work day because she’s not covered in pollen yet:


Same bee, different view.

An Almost-Double Dactyl for Her Ladyship

But first, the pictures. Her Ladyship goes flippykitty:

Now for the almost-double dactyl:

Flippity floppity,
Look at Her Ladyship
Sprawled in the yard on her
Back in the sun.

Dare I approach her and
Offer a bellyrub?
Claws in my forearms don’t
Sound like much fun.

The Friday Ark. The Carnival of the Cats.

Honkin’ big scissors, at a local repair shop where all the employees use them. (That’s my hand next to them, to give an idea of the scale.)

Does Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the USS Enterprise have something to hide... like his Hebrew name?
