Bee on Jerusalem Artichoke

Daily Image - 19 Sep 2012 - Bee on Jerusalem Artichoke

Late summer and the Jerusalem Artichokes come into bloom. Despite their bright yellow colour and the happy way they swing in the breezes, they always bring out a hint of sadness in me, harbingers as they are, of the cold weather just over the horizon. This happy bee however seems oblivious to all this as he drinks deep of the nectar whilst busily pollinating everything in sight.
