Hard At Work


I have two large pots of chives on my deck and they have been flowering for a few weeks now. The Bumble Bees seem to really love the flowers and spend hours going back and forth between the chives and the rosemary. These are large bees being almost an inch long.

They are happy to have this flower that they love! It's fun to watch them but hard to get good photos! Well done!

Beautiful chive bloom and a great capture of the working busy bee.

Nice one Pat. Just remember that if you see a bee gathering nectar it is a female. They are ones that do all work.
