Bumblebees


We have had problems lately with our honey bees. For some unknown reason many of the local hives have died, which has had an effect on the pollination in our garden. While we are starting a new hive now, Mother Nature has risen up to try to help us out. We have a profusion of bumblebees this year. I captured several working our squash plants in the garden and the thistle in our meadow in Grays Chapel, North Carolina.
