Beautiful Evenings in the field

The weather this week has been perfect if only it would stay light out a little longer. We have spent time walking the field looking at all of the late summer blooms filled with busy bees.

Honey Bees were busy working ragweed, sunflowers, and other blooms.

Found this little girl busy taking in nectar while having pollen packed into her pollen baskets – she will have a heavy load to bring back to the hive.

Also found a Drone (boy bee) hanging out in the shade

The last rush seems to be on for the bees as they get the most out of the last resources available before fall hits and the hives will snuggle in for colder weather.

Keeping Busy,

Michelle
