Pollen on a miner bee. Miner bees (or chimney bees) are one of many familiar black and yellow summertime bees often mistaken for bumble bees. They are garden pollinators and serve an increasingly important role as honey bee populations decline.
Coming in for a landing….Bees are a symbol of fertility as they spread their joy between flowers so that we can continue to appreciate all that we take soo much for granted. Please plant flowers to encourage, birds, bees and butterflies.
