Who knew bees has tongues and that they were so interesting. I went hiking at Prairie State Park last week in Missouri. Always a fun place to go and check out the wildflowers. As I was hiking I looked down and there were 3 bees all lined up on a leaf.
Want to know a little more about bees tongues? Bees need long tongues so that they can reach into flowers to where the nectar is. The bees’ tongue works like a straw and the bee unrolls her tongue and dips it into a flower or in this instance down to collect something from that leaf.

I had the wonderful opportunity to watch lady bugs gathering dew drops. About 2 weeks ago before the storms that flooded the area hit, I went hiking at Tanyard Loop with hopes of seeing the beautiful waterfalls and maybe even the heron fishing that I had seen on a prior trip. As I was hiking in I was struck by the dew drops on everything. There were lots of beautiful spiders webs that first caught my attention but then as I looked around the dew drops were glistening along the trial on the wonderful variety of green plants. I pulled out my macro lens and get to work. I loved the drops on all the varieties of leaves but then along came the lady bugs. It was fascinating watching them gather water drops as they moved around. I spent a long time watching them and I loved the opportunity to capture them.
