Gettin' My Buzz On

My neighbor with the chickens also plays host to honey bees.

 
She has five hives.
 
 
The honey bees love sunshine.
 
 
They also like to take a drink of water every now and then.
 
 
My friend says only old honey bees go after water. They actually put water in their little pollen pounches and return it to the hive!
 
 
I guess this would not be an old honey bee, then. He's drinking nectar or whatever it is they do when their head is stuffed in a flower.
 
Fascinating little creatures.

  1. I love watching bees... wasps, not so much as they tend to get ornery, but bees are cool creatures. :)

  2. I think I might have skipped the bee pictures. My luck and they would have been the killer bee type and chased me home!
