Busy As A Bee
This Bumblebee nest fell from a birdhouse that was toppled in the storm a few weeks ago. It's easy to see where the term 'busy as a bee' came from. They are constantly flying in and out of the hive intent on doing their jobs. Occasionally two will meet at the entrance fluttering their wings in some sort of Bumblebee communication. This morning the queen was on the outside of the hive doing some housekeeping...moving all the bits of fiber and leaves into a perfect mound. It's been fun to get a glimpse into the life of these beautiful pollinators.
