Bees on Asparagus Flowers

Once the asparagus got tall, it started to bloom and once it started to bloom, it started to buzz. 

There are always a few bees in the asparagus forest.   They have to work hard to get this pollen.



The pollen is dark orange and they never have much of it in the pollen baskets on their legs.




Must be good stuff though because there are always a few bees in there.

  2. I was just out there again and the bees are at it today again. Interesting that I almost never see bumble bees on it, just honey bees.
