The up and down temperatures in S.E. Virginia over the last several weeks, has brought some trees and flowers into bloom early, and others late. The most recent, and late to flower, was a 30 year old American Field Holly, producing a constant and strong sweet honey-like scent for days, and drawing bees in a steady stream.
* Note for interested photographers: All but one were shot on shutter-priority using a medium shutter-speed of 200, an ISO of 2-400, an accessory flash, and a zoom lens at 250mm, hand-held.
