Flowers that bees forage on, are some times tiny, for instance small wild flowers as well and the grass flowers before seeding.
Flowers that Bees Forage.
We noticed this on the farm walking through the land that the bees were very busy on these small
grass flowers and didn’t know that they would forage from them. Amazing bees, will find food somewhere.
The small flowers formed on another wild plant, which the sheep love to eat.
So tiny but provide white pollen noticeable on the leg baskets of the honey bee.
They will seek any form of foraging for food. These small wild flowers were nearly near their end.
Notice the creamy pollen on the bees legs that holds the pollen basket, which is made up of long hairs.
The honey bee will fly to its home hive were it will deposit the pollen.
In Ecuador the blossoms on the fruit trees are often and not only in spring time, as the weather is very stable.
Orange tree blossoms in the garden.
Only in Ecuador will you see blossoms on fruit trees especially the orange and lemon trees while they have fruit.
Winter in Ecuador the month of June.
Down the road almost 50 m away was a small field of achilla flowers. With red flowers all food for the bees.
A close up of the field of flowers, there was much more flowers later on and the field was red with its flowers blooming.
The grass is full of these tiny white flowers. All types of insects seek food from these plants.
The insect on the tiny white wild flowers looks like a bee fly.
