Mystery grape vines

See those vines? I’m used to watching my step when I climb past them. I’m used to hearing bees buzzing my ears. Lately, there’s bees under those leaves, and it’s a little unnerving to have them buzzing around my feet.

Mostly honeybees, with the occasional ant. Some bumbles. All bees that I know. I’m amazed they’re so interested in those tiny flowers.
