from a "click and hope" photographer


“The bee is more honored than other animals,
not because she labors,

but because she labors for others”

I agree with Libby on the colour of the flower.
I can't wait to see these busy little guys buzzing around again.

Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
