Bees and Squash Blossoms

I got my camera out this morning and took some photos of bees in the squash blossoms of my garden. This one bee was covered in so much pollen that it could barely fly. It still made it from plant to plant though, but every now and then it would have to stop and wipe its face off to see where it was going. I followed that one around for several photos and you’ll be able to tell which one it is each time you see it.

Some of these are cropped, but none are edited beyond that. It would have been really good to have had a macro lens for this, but I just use the one that came with my camera. Most of these photos are about 1000×667, so click view full size to see them like that.

    1. Thanks, but since then it’s gotten colder and the bees having come as much, so just now I was pollenating them by hand a little. I’m a busy bee too. 🙂

      1. We have a long growing season here. So long that these are actually plants from the second planting done partway through. They should be ready soon enough. 🙂
