No time to relax

One of the things that fascinate me during the spring and summer time is how much work some of these animals do to gather food to keep them going during the winter. I read somewhere that a honeybee has to visit approximately 2 million flowers to gather just 1 pound of honey. They are just always on the go and no time to relax. It is just mind boggling. All the more reason why I never feel enough of the honey bee pictures.

Weekly Photo challenge: Joy(ful) Sea Lion

The moment I read the topic for this week’s photo challenge, I knew I was going to post these pics.. I took them at Pittsburgh Zoo a few years back… It was summer… That seal was for sure joyful and thankful for the nice sun and the beautiful water fountain.
