Black Bumble Bee Foraging on Flowers.
The cosmos flowers are very popular in the garden as they are a pretty open petaled flower. Larger bees such as the carpenter bee and bumble bees can forage for nectar much easier. There was so much photo’s taken that it was decided to make a video slide of photo’s.
This shows the busy bumble bee actions, digging and obtaining nectar. Lots of pollen build up on its legs as well.
