A huge Queen's Wreath is located about two feet away from the car I use to go to work. For the last month, I've been dodging the bees as I get in and out, trying to make sure one didn't become a passenger. I'm kind of scared of bees.
In my rush, I never actually looked at the bees, but last week I noticed that there were many different types of bees.
This one was the prettiest. It has a shiney green body.
This is one is the most common type of bee I see on plants in our yard, and one I would term a honey bee.
But this one was totally unexpected.
He seemed like more of a schizophrenic bee, because he never actually stopped long enough at a flower to do anything. More like a librarian bee. He is what I would call a bumble bee, but definitely smaller than the type in Virginia where I grew up.
Even though I'm scared of bees, I hope to work that out, and have a bee hive at Tree Ring one day. If any of you know what type of bees these are, please let me know.
