But filthy this time. Sweat bee, again.
Bonus – Skipper on the Fleabane
Woke up to snow this morning. Ugh. It’s supposed to happen in the Rockies in the winter, but…
How about a counterpoint? That tongue! Wound like a watch spring.
Fun One on the Fleabane
Had a really good fleabane day in September – which is pretty rare. Normally, it’s the hoverflies on the fleabane. But that one day, there were bees all over it. So here’s a shot from that day. She’s got a pretty full pollen basket and I think it came from her work on the fleabane(s). They’re really tiny flowers, as you can see, and they don’t spend much time on each.
Was in the back yard for a bit yesterday. Made me sad to see the void where the three hives were. Already looking forward to Spring.
