Wow, those are some really great photo's dirtdorphins!! I kept saying "oh, that's my favorite" and then I'd move to the next pic and the next ... and they just kept getting better and better, whether a bee covered in pollen, heading toward a bloom, peeking out of a bloom or hovering over a bloom ... they are wonderful!

I was doing the same, Lin! Smiling I just couldn't decide on a favorite, so many great shots! Maybe the one where the cute bee is peaking its head out of the crocus... or maybe...

I agree
I feel bad, because my plum tree is starting to come to an end on blooms, which will leave mostly rosemary and Carolina Jessamine (also declining on blooms now) in the yard. But a few timid blooms are starting to appear on the property. It's really droughty however. The bluebonnets are trying to rev up to bloom, but this afternoon it's sort of hot and with no real significant rain recently, they look pathetic!

Thought I would overload the thread with too many bees before March ends...
(btw--I found out the worker bees are all girls. Apparently the boys, drones, are only good for one thing.)
