Now That's a Stinger!

I like to chase bees, as I mentioned before. So far I have been fortunate and none of my subjects have stung me. I suppose it is only a matter of time, but when I get the image I am looking for... I kind of think the feeling could make up for the pain of a sting.

Tequila on the Hoof

Well, probably not really Tequila fixin's. I don't think it's not that kind of Agave and this one in particular has a safe home at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden.

I like the color of this plant, more blue-gray than most Agave. The older outer leaves make interesting patterns on the new inner leaves making many interesting photographic opportunities.

Like my Orchid Cactus the Agave are commonly pollinated by bats.
