Still Buzzing

Carpenter bee on aster

Carpenter bee on aster

Things are getting ratty looking in the garden, but the heart-leaved aster is still hosting a buzzapalooza every day. I wish I could get some pictures that conveyed just how many bees are all over. There must be a dozen bees just on one plant. Plus an Eastern carpenter bee showed up the other day.

And I got some video.

It’s just a second, but you can see the bumble’s tongue. The bit of motion to the right is probably a shiny green sweat bee.

Two whole seconds of two bumbles. Listen to the buzz.
