New Orleans Honeybee Forage

It was great to see so many honeybees during our recent trip to New Orleans. It seemed wherever anything was in bloom—from street meridians on the outskirts of the French Quarter to virtually every square inch of the garden district to the flowering peas in a wreck of a graveyard, the honeybees were there. (We saw some exquisite and unfamiliar butterflies and dragonflies, too. And my first purple martins!)

My macro lens has been failing lately, so instead of bee closeups, I'm providing here a few eh-shots of some of the many flowers on which I saw honeybees forage, plus two bonus shots.
