The Conductor

I found the Conductor!
The Conductor was busy directing of the Symphony of Spring...
Miner Bee
Well, at least that's what crossed my mind when I saw this miner bee...
... in its burrow at the edge of the forest, waving its front legs in the air as if it was leading spring's progression.
   I've been having fun kneeling on a road embankment observing and taking photos of these amazing mining bees.  I'll post more about this colony of ground-nesting bees soon!


  1. Dana, posts like this show me how much I fail to notice in the world around me ...

    1. Sybil,
      Hey, I passed by this miner bee colony many times and didn't notice the "mines". For years I even ignored that vernal pool (where I saw the salamander mating congress) I posted about the other week. Can you imagine that?
