Carnival #midnighthaiku

Carnival colours

Spangled fur and gossamer

Celebrate summer

With only the phone to hand, I was kicking myself for leaving the camera at home when the bees came in to the globe thistles. The pollen on their backs, refracting the sunlight, made them sparkle as if they were bedecked with sequins. I have never seen that happen before. Not that they need any help to be beautiful.
