Lights! Cameras! Pollen!
So now there are bees and pollinators all over the front garden. Especially bumblebees. Judy took these videos with her phone. This first one is mostly bumblebees on the Wild Bergamot. Judy says these bees are rather hyperactive and difficult to keep in the frame.
Bumblebees always seem so industrious, but also cute. Maybe because they’re furry-looking.
Still very few butterflies, though.
Here’s another video featuring big scary-looking black wasps and other pollinators on the swamp milkweed.
These wasps have never stung me, and I try to stay out of their personal space.
Watching bees in the garden is one of my favorite things, I find it almost mesmerizing.
