Busy Bees


I woke up this morning early, but I wasn't the only one! Bees were very busy everywhere. With coffee in hand I took a few photos. Here are some honey bees on the poppies. Someone must have a hive nearby. So glad to see these important pollinators!




Here a bumble bee hangs onto a borage flower.


The fairy rose is at it's peak and is covered with bumble bees, honey bees and sweat bees.


The hostas are little bags that the bees go in and out of with efficency.


Here is a little sweat bee (Augochlorella aurata), bright green and iridescent on the cosmos.  Happy to see so many at work, time for me to do the same!
