bumble bee, native bee

These bee shots were taken yesterday morning. I have a little row of Flanders poppies growing under my bedroom window. I noticed that the pollen on the stamens were a very dull green colour. This made me wonder if the bees that collected the nectar from these flowers would have green pollen sacks on their legs...And sure enough they did!! Bee's with khaki pollen pants!!

  1. Great photos! And what a cool 'bee' perspective on the second one where some bg is visible.
