I see… Black and Yellow

I’ve been quietly collecting black and yellow images for a few weeks and now, having got permissions sorted, it’s my great pleasure to present to you:

“How much pollen can a bee transport at one time? As it circled the inside of a sunflower, this bee filled the pollen baskets on its hind legs with so much bright yellow pollen that I was afraid it would not be able to lift off and fly away. In addition to the very full pollen baskets, which looked like cotton candy to me, the bee was virtually covered with grains of pollen. My fears proved to be unfounded, and the overladen bee was able to carry away its golden treasure.”  — Mike Powell

    1. Its a beautiful site and I could spend hours there! Thank you, I didn’t know about it! Wish me luck as I’m one of four presenters at an art gallery tomorrow – talking about Colour and my experience of blogging. I’ve only spoken publicly in my life about twice, years ago, and hated it. Third time lucky perhaps, I’ve gained in confidence this last year doing the blogging 🙂

      1. Good Luck Liz. I’m hoping you write a post all about it and take lots of photos of the art gallery. You’ll be great. I’m stoked you like the site. I get lost there too. Love the combinations and the photos. Blissful.


        1. Hi Nat! Thought I’d check my spam and was amazed to find the two comments of yours that had got ‘lost’. Heavens knows why they went to spam. Anyway, thanks for your lovely comments and encouragement, really appreciated them!

      2. Hmm I thought I had replied. Ah well. I’m glad you love the website too. Colour truly has a way of hitting me right in the heart. Good luck! You’ll be awesome! Xx


    1. Really glad you enjoyed it! I like yellow too. Pete, you ever seen an albino snail? When you find my Such Stunning Snails post, you might like to follow the link to the albino snail. I’d never seen or heard of such a thing!


  1. Love these images well done!!! 🙂 Feel free to use any of my photos and credit me if you like! I take more photos when I am travelling, so my travel posts would be more suitable. 🙂

        1. Watercolours can be very special indeed! Hey, I’ve been meaning to ask you if you’ve looked at Rebecca Baumann’s art. She did an installation in our art galley here and I’ve looked at some of her work on the internet. I think she comes from Perth!
