Sweat Bee, Tongue, and Yarrow

This is the wrong yarrow again…although I really can’t tell what’s wrong with it. Nor can the bees and wasps. This one was just covered on Wednesday. This is a really fun shot…of a really small bee. They almost look like they have fat pants on. Full pantaloons. Or saddlebags when seen from behind.

Should have spent more time on Wed preparing to leave…and spent less time shooting bees. But…dang…it’s so rewarding. So much fun. And so interesting.

Abdomen-up Leafcutter in the Yarrow

This is in the new parking strip garden (think we put it in last year) and it’s looking really good. Apparently, though, this yarrow is “the wrong one” and is a little too tall. Guess it will be relocated in the fall?? Anyway, I love this bee. Always abdomen-up. And fuzzy. And those eyes?

Will be in Whitefish, Montana on Fri, Sat, Sun for the art festival. Come check it out if you’re in the area!
