Overnight we jumped right into spring. The temperatures soared to 78 degrees today with sunshine and big puffy white clouds against a bright blue sky. It made me rather euphoric. The pollinators were eager too. Happily visiting all the blooms in my garden.
It was almost perfect except for the gusts of wind which temporarily blew the bees in swarms out of the tree. Only to quickly return and get back to the business at hand...pollination.
It made it difficult for them to hang on to their blooms but somehow they found a way. I had an even more difficult time photographing them with so much constant movement from the bees and the wind. Mere seconds of opportunity to take the shots before they were swooped away.
The bees really made the most of the day. Working those blooms and packing on the pollen.
What a perfectly, wonderful day!
