Flower, Fly and Bee

Can a flower be selective?

I can hear her murmur with a long suffering sigh, "Him again."

That fly certainly feels very innocent. “I am not the one who goes hovering around faeces!!”

“I’ll go deep inside and give you an unreachable itch if you start making noises". Here come another intruder.


"......."

Gorgeous pictures, Rainfield. I hear the flowers saying the same thing when my camera is aimed at them.."Her, again?"

Ginnymo said...

I like the 2nd last photo. The white stuff are flower pollen?

These are very beautiful macros of the flower and its visitors. I enjoyed her thoughts very much.

Lol)) I knew this had to be rich when I glanced over at my side bar this morning (grin) Oh my..ya, well you sure echo my thoughts.. speaking for that defiled orchid! I've thought of nearly the same when I saw a bee pollinating a weed! In that case, maybe he perhaps he had a bad upbringing? But this fly..alright, at least I can move past the itch and can appreciate your macro..and we must admit they are colorful!
Hmm..you've given me a bit of inspiration! keep it up, ha ha

The flowers get many daily visitors, some wanted and some unwanted.

I wonder what colors the fly sees?

I bet the flower and the insects are saying to you "Huh, not him again!" :) Nice shots rainfield as always..

One said...

I see a little sign on the flowers that says, "All pollinators are welcomed".

It is always such fun reading what you have to say and, perhaps, in reality, you really are a flower and a bee whisperer. I have every confidence that you are a gifted human being!

That fly has such beautiful colors. It's a pity that flowers can't be selective nor complain. But that means they're equal opportunity providers. =D
