A lone bee was busy working these pink blooms on a recent morning.
The blossoms remind me of a roof-top satellite dish, communicating in secret to the bee.
He seemed to get the message.

Just because it made me laugh.
I was taking pictures of the Ruby-throated Hummingbird but ended up focusing on the purple blossom, looking like a gaping mouth, or a hand puppet or ??
Actually two small green bugs, assuming that is two sets of antennae. I was looking for tree frogs but this just wasn’t their day to bask in a flower bloom.
This bloom was a different color than the other Pitcher Plant flowers I saw at Okefenokee Swamp. There are seven species found in Georgia and a bit of research reveals Pitcher Plants are a pretty big topic.
