But it’s a neat shot nonetheless. In this one, a honeybee is getting a drink of water off the lid of a 5-gallon bucket in the driveway. Very cool tongue – and kind of a neat bee in the background.
But here’s more at the point: these little ones get thirsty. Put out a birdbath – especially if you live somewhere dry. Even a small dish of water near what’s blooming at the moment. Fill part of it with rocks so they have somewhere to stand while they’re drinking. Then go check it occasionally when you see the bees out. You’ll notice that they’re visiting your offering (and are grateful in their own, bee ways).
