Foraging Bumblebee..

 I am amazed at how much work the Bumblebee's do.
 They will visit flowers that exhibit the pollination syndrome.
 They love to visit the same flowers patches  as long as they continue to find a source,
 of nectar and pollen.
 my garden is filled with many Bumblebee's, and I can find them on my Cosmo's and
 Lavender every day. I sure hope I can continue to learn about them and provided for them.
What insect could resist the beauty of Cosmo's?

Shirley,
The bumble bee pictures are stunning today. You mentioned lavender, but the flower looks so PINK to me. It is one of the prettiest flowers I've seen. The color is gorgeous.

Love,
