Bumblebees

Lobelia and pollen-collecting bumblebee
It's so much fun to watch bumblebees (of various sizes) visiting flowers, whether they're collecting nectar or pollen.

Aster and bumblebee
This is the time of year that asters, lobelias, goldenrod, snakeroot, and other fall-flowering species are covered with flower visitors.

They're tremendous fun to watch as they forage.

  1. Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust considered 2012 to be the worst on record for invertebrates. Delighted to say that summer 2013 has seen a resurgence in the bumble bee and butterfly populations over here....

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
