Hard at Work by My Angelic Wife (Explored)

Hard at Work by My Angelic Wife (Explored) 

(Explored) A Honey Bee hard at work doing what bees do, captured by my late wife at Bayard Cutting Arboretum State Park on Long Island in New York. This is the first of her great photos that I'm posting since her recent tragic death from Coronavirus. We both hope you enjoy it!

PS - I'm sure that Joni is very happy about making Explore!

"Rest in Peace My Love!!"

Thanks, George!

Sorry it took me a while to reply. I've had a few bad days this week, both physically (still not quite over my Covid19 infection's "residual gifts" to my memory, etc. And emotionally. It seems that I have a never ending supply of tears!" But it is all getting slowly better.

No need to apologise, John. You're having a particularly rough time, just focus on getting better and treat online activities as a relaxing part of the process.
