the humming trees

with no breeze in the air, these trees are the only one's moving....a slight quiver

curious, you creep closer.

a droning

and closer

a frenzy of flitting, fleeting, flocking bees.

brief and to the point with each blossom.

which reminds me.... bee pollen! granules gleaned as the flying foragers go about pollinating the desert. sweet and powerfully healthy, especially in the sonoran desert where its a smorgasbord of blossoms for months on end. enjoy it in milkshakes, salads, cereals or like me, just pop a pinch in your mouth and let it melt.

*Note: the above photo of the tree is an ornamental pear tree. When the blossoms fall, it snows in the desert.
