Hi Iowa!

I saw your photo featured in last week's Camera Critters blog this morning. That's how up to speed I am not.

I enjoyed seeing your bees, buds, and pollen. Great photos! I scrolled down and saw your cute dogs, water, and such. Happy October!

We are having some mild fall weather in Nebraska. I have had different things going on that have kept me out of the garden more than I prefer to be. I am hoping to get some potatoes dug this weekend and catch up on my weeding.

The first was showered with pollen.I like to look for the pollen sacs they build on their hind legs. Nice post.

Neat shots of the bee. Isn't it amazing how they coat themselves in pollen?

So that's what bee's knees are...ha! I like the first one with all the pollen all over him...aaahchoo!

That bee isn't collecting pollen, he's rolling in it! LOL What neat images.

LOL! Bees are such gluttons, rolling in all that lovely pollen, covering their whole bodies. Great shots!

That bumblebee must have been really drunk on pollen after visiting your garden! What a great capture.

Connie said...

neat photos! I find a lot of bees sleeping in the garden every morning, and now that it's cooler into the the afternoon sometimes, as well.
