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.

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-]
