hot pink

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

A honeybee does what he does best - collecting nectar. I watched for quite awhile as the bee crawled across the beautiful hot pink Monarda blooms, his wings tightly locked together. This plant is otherwise known as Bee Balm and secretes a large amount of nectar, which makes it a favorite with bees.

Um, I think that's a girl bee. The males in the honeybee society are lazy slugs who hang around the hive and do mostly nothing.
