More Pictures Today…

Taking a break from paper work to post some more pictures this afternoon.

Not sure if any of you are in the Great Sunflower Bee Project where you take a half-hour block and count how many bees visit your flowers…well, shoot…I have hundreds of bees that visit ALL FLIPPING DAY. I have honey bees, mason bees, and some wee bee (at least I think they’re bees) that visit my lavender, sunflowers, coreopsis, delphiniums. I should go document them I guess.

Here is a white striped bee (?) with green eyes…it’s not fuzzy like another one I saw with the same colors.

And here is the wee bee, it really is 1/2 the size of the honey bee.
