Bees' knees and cactus


Yes, we have cacti in Ocala. We also have bees. Someone said bees' knees can get stuck on the spines of the cactus, but I think that's a lot of hogwash!

 Everyone knows bees' knees are hard as a rock!

I would have thought you have too much rain in Florida for cactus.

Great shot! You know I love a good cactus bloom and add a bee and you have a perfect shot.

I am ashamed to say, I didn't know there was cacti in Florida. I think that bee has had one too many.

Everyone knows bees kneed pollen. Flowering cactus has it.
