A Welcomed Sight

One of my favorite things is to find our bees out pollinating our plantlife. A few of the apple trees have begun to bloom....and the bees went right to work.Although the next two pictures are blurry, they are an excellent illustration of how these bees carry pollen in their pollen baskets on their legs. You can see a yellow structure attached to each of her visible legs... This pollen is carried back to the hive and becomes an important source of protein for the bees.
