Bonus – Allium Blossom for Context/Scale

You know the size of a honeybee – more or less. Compare the little green one I posted as today’s bee. And realize that it’s hanging off of a single anther…and is in the foreground. Tiny bee!

And this one is pretty cool herself. Check out her neck…

Shot this one this afternoon, by the way.

100+ Bee Day – May 10th

Because May 10th was the 100th consecutive day of the “Bee-a-Day” on this site, I decided to celebrate by posting 100 bees that day. I kinda got carried away. Final tally: 150 bees posted, 10 bonus (quasi-)pollinators, and one beebaby iris.

Bonus and Digression – Last of the ‘BeeBabies’

The fourth of four finally opened today – here it is. So…we had a pod of bee-bred iris seeds, planted them, and they flowered this year. They’re all from the same pod – siblings – yet are very different. The other three can be found here and here and here. Neat stuff. My favorite is the purple, but this one is plenty neat itself.
