Honeybees Busy at Work

Since this is our first year keeping honeybees everything they do is amazing to me! I could sit there for hours watching them. They were very busy yesterday gathering nectar and pollen from the daisies that are blooming. It’s fun to watch them collect the pollen on their legsĀ and put it in theirĀ pollen baskets.

They visit a lot of flowers!!!

This one has a big load of pollen!

I thought this was an interesting picture. You can see the honeybee’s tongue getting the nectar and another bee is trying to force it off of the flower.

Thank goodness I’m not scared of honeybees anymore after realizing they are way to busy to pay attention to me. This one was heading right at me!
