If you have never been to Napa Valley, I would recommend visiting the area – especially the small town of Yountville (just north of Napa). It is a gorgeous little town with lavender everywhere. As you walk down the streets, the smell of the flowering plants permeates the air, as does the gentle sound of buzzing (as the flowers attract a lot of bees, who somehow never manage to bother you).

I had some time to kill and had my equipment with me, so I hunkered down in front of some of the shrubs around the corner from R+D Kitchen and captured some of these industrious little creatures doing their thing.
