The cherry trees are doing their springtime thing of producing tight pompoms of flowers the size of softballs, so I thought I'd try to get a snapshot of them this year. Instead, I was distracted by the honeybees visiting the cherry blossoms:
A honeybee checks out the cherries
A honeybee covered in cherry pollen
…and however they pack the pollen on, it doesn't go all the way around their back legs:
A honeybee in flight carrying pollen
…although I still swear the pollen clumps look like the floaties kids wear in swimming pools. And, wouldn't you know, I seem to be Google's top hit for the phrase "bee floaties!"
PS: Yes, still allergic to bees. Yes, still getting way too close to lots of them with a camera. Yes, still stupid.
