Sortie

January thaw
Beehives send scouting parties
Searching for the spring.

Summertime

The year’s hottest day
Nectar glistens in the sun
But the bees seek shade.

Salvia

Fragrant herb garden
Pollen-heavy honeybees
Ride the purple sage.

Honeybee

Chilly honeybee
Seeks the warmth of golden light
In a squash blossom.

Polistes III

Hunting paper wasps
Creeping through the undergrowth
Caterpillar, climb!

Polistes II

Empty garden shed
Paper wasps shave silver curls
From the windowsill.

Polistes

Golden-legged wasp
Delicately climbs rose thorns
Dangerous beauty.
