Day of 100(+) Bees!!

Today is the 100th day of “The Daily Bee”. To celebrate, I’m going to post 100(+) bees today. These shots are drawn from, at random, three folders on my computer. One is from a particulary good day at Red Butte Gardens in Salt Lake, the other is from what I thought were from some nice shots this Spring, and the other is a sampling of shots from 2018. Again, random – had about 14,000 to pick from – and randomized the pics you see here. There will be some similar pics – Sedum and Asters are pretty overrepresented. But random does what random does – especially when the deck’s long on Sedum and Aster.

I’m also including a few “bonus” pollinators in the mix. Hope you enjoy. Good fun for me. Here’s a “beebaby” iris to get started – a creation of pollination. And it turned out well!

Scroll down for the rest of this long mess…or click here to go to the Day of 100 Bees. I’m going to leave this stickied up top for a week or so. Or you can scroll through the daily posts until you reach May 10th.

Final tally: 150 bees posted, 10 bonus (quasi-)pollinators, and one beebaby iris. Hope you enjoy. Was fun to put together!

  1. Not sure I’ve ever seen a baby bee. Think they come out of the hive fully-baked.

    But…that iris is a beebaby – in that it’s a creation of pollination. It’s one of five…the fifth has yet to bloom. They’re all siblings (from the same pod on the parent, Morning Hues). I posted shots of all four of them last week. So far, they’re all keepers. The one I posted today is really prolific. When I was outside just a bit ago, it had six blossoms on two stalks. Beautiful.
