My macro photography skills are a little rusty due to the lack of practice. Finally we have some flowers in our yard–yesterday I looked for violets and dandelions, and could find neither. Today, several are blooming. I got my first insect on a flower photograph of the year today–this small bee on a violet.
Kind of refreshing to the soul.
Note: Bugguide identified this as a small carpenter bee, Ceratina calcarata.
