Honey & Bumble Bees

A week ago, our Willow tree was absolutely buzzing with thousands of Bees. I caught a few shots with an E1 and MACRO 1:2 lens

1. Bumble with Phoretic Mites - these are harmless and the Queen picks these up hibernating during the winter, they are Hitch Hikers !

2. Honey Bee - lots of pollen all over

3. This is THE SHOT I wanted nearly - I wanted face to face ! but hey! ho!

I Lurve Walking in our Glorious Countryside; Photography;
Riding Ducati Motorbikes; Reading & Cooking ! ...

Re: Honey & Bumble Bees

Nice shots always thought the mites meant the end for the Bee, glad to hear they are just looking a free ride.

What if the Hokey Cokey is what its all about?
