Buzzing with activity

With all the new flowers blooming, there is a constant buzz in my yard – from the bees coming by to gather materials for their hives. I took this of one on our Arnold Honeysuckle. This is the first of our honeysuckle to bloom, though it will shortly be followed by the gorgeous gold flame vines. In this photo you can see the pile of pollen on the bee’s back leg – his head is a blur because frankly, bees make terrible models.
