Her head in the nest.

My latest bee study was this morning, and this busy girl won the contest after I sorted and cropped and compared my many photos. It’s the first picture I have taken of a bee on a blackberry flower. When I realized that, it made me curious as to what all bee-flower interactions I’ve captured before, and I started hunting through my files to create a list of bee pictures. Right next to this one, more bees were drinking at the privet flowers. Soon I will show you one of them, too! But now it’s past my bedtime, and I’m sure the bees turned in a while ago.

  1. I know so little about bees. I only recently realized that individual bees I see on boats probably are non-colonizing species, like leaf-cutter bees. I sometimes see one dying on a boat deck, and have felt terrible, but now I suspect those single bees are ones whose life is ending naturally, and whose work is done.
