Another week, another photo to highlight.

This week’s photo is another example of nature’s beauty found in everyday places. It was sent in by Mary Elaine Leach and shows a bee getting some nectar from the flower of a thistle plant located in the parking lot of her work. It’s amazing what you can see all around you if you take a moment to look.

Thanks for the photo, Mary!
