Observing insects on flowers can while away significant portions of my day but it is a joyous pursuit when in produces an image I can connect with. Recently while on vacation near Lake Tahoe in California I was chasing a bee on some Cornflowers and this is what I saw.

The brilliant blue colour of the cornflower really is eye-catching even in a field of meadow flowers. According to folklore, cornflowers were worn by young men in love; if the flower faded too quickly, it was taken as a sign that the man’s love was not returned.
