Well-Nigh Wordless Wednesday: Bee on Catkin

I know the world has a ton of bee-on-flower photos, but I really love the flowers of mesquite trees, and bees on the flowers make them extra nice:

Ah, spring/summer in the desert!  What a glorious experience!  (Well, right up until it gets above 105 degrees outside.  Then it can become decidedly less glorious if you’re working out in the sun.)

Science Sunday will be late!

It’s been a busy week and I finally had a chance to spend a little time to do fun things like running errands with my husband yesterday.  As a result, I didn’t finish my blog post and Science Sunday will be late today.  To tide you over until the post goes up (and it’s going to feature a very interesting group of aquatic insects, the caddisflies), I offer this photo of a scene that will soon be making an appearance in Arizona:
