Bumble Bees

Hi,
Just a few more pictures. The Monarda (Wild Beebalm) is in full bloom and I must have 50 bumblebees all over it any time I go to observe. First year for the Purple Prairie Clover to bloom, such a pretty flower.






Next time I'll get my real camera out instead of my phone, although I've been telling myself that for weeks.

Peace

1. In the SW it's the Palo Verde trees that bring in a lot of the bees but I saw very few bees

this season despite the trees having a lot of bloom. The bees have a job and do it. I can walk and hear them buzzing all around me but I don't worry about getting stung by them. I did see a bee this AM walking on the ground. Great pics.

2. Pretty!

I had bumbles all over my hollyhocks, but unfortunately, they once again got covered in rust and I had to take them out. They are making do with the zinnias and cone flowers at the moment.
