Camera Critters #110 B'zzz


This morning in the garden we saw a busy bee collecting pollen from the Ceanothus flowers. 
She looks almost drunk, her baskets full to overflowing and grains of pollen dusting her legs and the hairs of her body.Does that eye look sleepy to you?

  1. She's loaded with pollen, all right. She must have been working for awhile to collect so much. Maybe it is time for a nap...

  4. I think I would be sleepy if I was carrying all that pollen around. Makes me sleepy looking at how hard he's working. Great photos! Love that beautiful blue flower and wonderful close-ups of a busy bee. Thanks for stopping by. Would love to see Barry's train set-up one of these days. We have friends who put up a village complete with train track around their Christmas tree every year. It's quite a production but most definitely a labor of love and such fun to look at.

  5. She does look a bit drunk! She has got such a big eye. Bees are great for observing as they don't move too fast and don't seem to be bothered by people being nearby.
