What’s in there?

This is one of those photos I didn’t know I had until I was reviewing the day’s pics on the computer. I love the way the bee, a European wool carder, is standing on a leaf and seems to be opening the flower and peering inside. Of course, I think she was just doing what bees do and all this is in my imagination, but I love it anyway.

Thanks for that photo! Now that I see it, I think I’ve seen those bees before. Hurray!

I have seen my bees trying to force open crocus flowers.

Love that photo, Rusty.

I had left my phone out on the picnic table today and my son came to me saying that one of my bees was trying to make a call. By the time I got there she had gone but I suspect she was trying to call 911 to report she had been robbed.
