Did you know that...

  • ...about 90 U.S. crops depend on bees for pollination?
  • ...many hives are trucked from region to region for pollination purposes?
  • ...honeybee health is threatened by, among other things, mites?

Saddle Bags

Saddle Bags
Originally uploaded by Dalantech
I'm trying out a new feature this evening that allows me to post photos - really good ones too - from Flickr.

I'm hoping this will make for added interest, since you've been kind enough to come visit here.

I think the term "Saddle Bags" is an appropriate description of what we're seeing here: a worker bee with a developing load of pollen.

Signing off,

Bees Keeper
