Busy as a Bee on Chives

As the weather has settled down and chores have been done I stopped to watch the bees on the chives in my garden. Intent and with singleness of purpose, they go from flower to flower gathering nectar and pollen as food for themselves and their young. By carrying pollen on their bodies they also perform a critical service as pollinators, enabling plants to reproduce.

And they do it all cheerfully held aloft on tiny gossamer wings.

Isn’t it a miracle? πŸ™‚
