Find more weekend reflections at James’ Newtown Area Photo.

When I returned to my car after shooting the condominium picture shown on Thursday, I found this honeybee on the roof of my car. Just as well, I had washed the car a couple of days earlier, thus getting a nice reflection in the paintwork. There was an icy cold breeze, so the poor creature was a little dazed and got blown off its perch, surprisingly finding a foothold on the windscreen. The result was a pretty double reflection (last picture below, reflecting in the top and bottom surface of the glass).

  2. There have not been many bees in my garden yet, it has been too cold. I love the reflection of the sky as well as the bee.
