I Return My Flower, A Changed Bee...

Another milestone today. Greg took this picture of a honeybee collecting pollen on a dandelion. Those little orange thingies are sacs on the back legs, which the bee uses to store the pollen she collects on her rounds. When she returns to the hive, other bees will help unload it and stuff it into comb cells for future use in feeding the larvae. This is a good sign and the first indication I have seen that the bees are actively foraging.
