A honey bee in flight, pollening in my garden in Pioneer, TN

This is one of my honey bees from our hives, collecting pollen on the top of our corn one summer. This is one of many that were in flight swarming that day. I just thought is was such a beautiful sight, and such a blessing. I couldn’t pass up this shot!
