an Odd Photo

Sepia Saturday this week asks us to find an odd photo to share.  They certainly have an odd one...a boy with a couple of birds having already been plucked. (come over to see other's odd photos, at Sepia Saturday)

While looking through my library, I can't find anything that odd.


But here I have a couple, do they qualify as odd?  Look closely.


Why do you think these bees are interested in this rock, and only this place on the rock?

My guess is that it has something to do with the fact that people walk their dogs right past this rock all day.  But ducks and geese also frequent the area.

That's pretty weird.

My, that is odd indeed! Must have been something sweet tasting left around that particular piece of rock!!

The last time I went to see my bee man for some honey I asked him who bought the small jars of yellow bee pollen he was selling, and also how he collected it. Luckily I did not buy any or try it. I had assumed that the yellow colour was from flowers, but the mention of dogs leaves me wondering now. Rather the same as the advice "don't eat yellow snow"

A perfect fit this week, thank you. It's what you don't see that intrigues.

That definitely qualifies as odd. What are they looking for?

Yes, indeed, odd, pic and explanation
is TMI.

Wonder if there will be an answer to this oddity.

I'm inclined to think someone poured a sweet drink onto the rocks, rather than my first thoughts about dogs....

Deb Gould said...

Do they qualify as "odd?"
YOU BETCHA!

Bees on the rocks -- talk about getting a buzz!

Emma Major said...

that really is odd, but you can often get bees near sand so I wonder if it's that type

Alan Burnett said...

If you are going to be odd you might as well bee odd.

Odd indeed! Bees freak me out. We have incidences all the time in south Florida where a large hive will take up residence in a neighborhood tree or roof eave and then suddenly attack someone's dog. I think about this every time I see a bee buzzing around my back yard.

A good choice for the theme. Bees and butterflies need salt and minerals and so are attracted to rocky puddles and damp earth.
