Bees captivated by a field of Viburnum

Posted by blueberrytalk on June 5, 2010

Thousands of bees have gathered to collect pollen from a field of Viburnum. Hopefully the bees efforts will produce attractive red berries that will show well at the flower auction. David and Stephanie,in the picture below, give some scale to the size of this field.

On the left a bee gathers pollen from a Viburnum. On the right a bee arrives at our Apiary with a similar pollen load. We are just less than a kilometre away.
