Pomegranate Blossom

This is from the pomegranate tree in my backyard. Last year it produced a grand total of ONE pomegranate. This year I have grand expectations. Of course, it could double last year's yield and produce two! At least it has some beautiful blossoms.

Wings for dinner?

These are European Bee-Eaters. These birds
eat about 250 bees per day which they catch in
mid-air. Before eating them, they hit them
against a hard surface to remove the stinger.
