Loaded for bear

This very busy little bee was all over some of my hog plums yesterday. It was a real challenge to press the shutter at just the right moment. I only managed to catch her once before I got the dreaded CARD FULL message. Notice the bulging pollen sacs. She'll take that back to the hive and store it. Pollen provides the protein in the bees' diet.

You nailed her Sophie!
That's a great shot. I love hog plums.

Thanks ever so, Cathy. I'm about 95% better and getting real antsy! It'll be great to sleep through the night again. 8-]

FC, thanks! I love 'em, too. We have a lot more blooming this year. One's just about to start turning pink. The rest are just popping out. They'll be gorgeous in a few days. 8-]
