BEE......N Busy

   While outside with my camera this morning, I decided to take a pic of  one of my clumps of Purple Coneflower:
While admiring the color of these blooms, I happened to notice this guy:

He is soooo loaded with pollen, he looks hilarious. This guy has been one busy bee. I have never seen anything like it.

He looks almost too fluffy to fly.


  1. I have never seen anything like that! Is there really a bee under there? :-)

  2. Greedy little thing isn't it. It is a wonder it was not drunk on all that pollen.

  3. LOL, I am wondering if it got a little high, and rolled in it.

  4. OH my goodness...even as beekeepers I have never ever seen a bee so loaded down. It is wonder the little one can even fly! Kim

  5. inadvertent farmer, its interesting to hear that this is even a rare occurrence from beekeepers.I know I have never seen it before.

  6. What a super bee shot! Love it! Jean
