Smile! The world is a beautiful place (^_^)

Yesterday I saw my first bee of the year, and not just any bee – I think she’s unusually beautiful, and look how happy she is! πŸ™‚ Covered in fresh pollen from a crocus, just what she needed after the winter.

  7. Look at all that pollen! Was she really large, thus a queen or one of the workers. Each has their own unique specialty, all important to the community.Well captured!.
