    Was taking a picture of this flower when this carpenter bee decided to pose for me.

    Nice. I guess Rose-of-Sharon is ubiqitous on our side of the pond, because I've seen it (or photos of it) pretty much coast to coast.

    Good to know. Not real a botanist myself, but a neat looking flower.

    They are nice looking. I'm not a botanist, either, but I've made a point to learn as many of our flowers and trees as I can. It makes my hikes more interesting. :)

    That flower colour along with a few others are darn hard to get right Dave, bang on with these. I find those colours hard to take. Nice bit of action going on with the bee and nicely done.

    All the best Dave.

    Thanks. I know bright colorful flowers can be tough to get right.
