Bringing in the Pollen

The bees were busy again this weekend and have found new source of pollen. We saw both creamy yellow and orange pollen on their baskets. With the impending storm they seemed particularly focused on packing it in. They barely paid us any mind as we sat by Columbia's entrance just watching them.

Grant had a great idea to place the camera just above Columbia's entrance. You can see the flight pattern the bees perform before landing on the alighting board. A few seconds in you can see a curious bee cleaning the camera lens.
