Two – and Almost in Focus

Two honeybees on or near the Salvia. Very close to nailing the focus on both. I’ve mentioned before the variation in the color of the honeybees – note that one is the golden that you’d expect while the other is more grey. That’s not a trick of light, but really the color. I suspect that they come from different hives, but I’m not sure. Seems the ones in the three hives here are quite uniform in color – that golden you see in the top bee.

The other thing is that these little ones can be outright rude to each other. Sometimes they’ll share a blossom – and others, they’ll knock the one off to take the pollen – even those of the same species. Anyway…
