Another Honeybee – but on a Rock Cress

Really heavy on the honeybees lately. I’ve only seen one bumble so far this spring – no, two – but both the same kind (coulda been the same one on different days??). Not quite a passable picture of either, unless you like bumblebutt. And there might be something to that. Forewarned is forearmed, I guess.

But this one – another honeybee on what’s blooming now – happens to be Rock Cress (“some kind of Aubrieta“, I’m told – whatever that is). But they sure were having a good time on that bit of ground cover today. And it really is pretty. And the bee’s gorgeous, too. Neat pollen bucket and you can really see the hair around her eye. Saw lots today cleaning their faces and curating the pollen. Have to believe that’s the purpose of the hair on the eye.

Had a pretty hard freeze last night (~25F up here on the hill) so a lot of blossoms got a bit wrecked. But it was in the 60s this afternoon – looked and felt and smelled like spring. And do realize that when I say, “I shot this one this afternoon”, I’m writing to you from the past – specifically last night (which is now, for me, tonight). So when you’re reading this, today is yesterday. (Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow creeps in this petty pace… And all our yesterdays…)

And where else are you going to get the Bards of Avon and Zevonia on consecutive days? Signifying what?
