Cherry Blossoms & Bees

April 11, 2010

Irresistable

It was a beautiful spring day and the girls were out in force.  I watched them working weeping cherry blossoms for about and hour or so.  It seems they came in waves…one group after the next with a lull in between.  I guess a field forager would communicate to the hive the bounty to be had in my garden…convincing a group of her sisters to follow her to the cherry blossoms.  The bumble bees were also working the blossoms as well as those of the andromeda (which the honeybees didn’t seem to work at all).

I snapped a few pics of the activity (really could use a macro lens to do them justice).
