Early Morning Riser

They say that the early bird gets the worm, but in this case, it is the early worker bee that gets the pollen! I was out feeding the outside animals and saw activity on a plant that seems to be a false lambs ear. The pic here is of a honey bee. Notice the pollen sac on her rear leg. She is going to take this home so her colony can pack it away and use it as 'bee bread' to feed the young larve. This certainly makes for happy bees and a happy family!

What a great shot. I have to admit...I'd have stayed far away from her...even if she meant no

I zoomed in to see the pollen sac. I have those too in the exact same places on my legs!

Cool picture. I love how you love bees.
