I am sad to say I don't see many honey bees but I have bumble bees galore. Here are some shots I just took.

They were sharing the flowers with butterflies.

I have lots of bees in my yard including bumble bees, but re-thinking that now because I got stung by one a few weeks back and it didn't go so well. Worried that next time I may have an even worse reaction.
