Bees and blueberry pollen

Posted by blueberrytalk on June 24, 2011

The Mason bee (top left) has loaded up with blueberry pollen. The Sweat bee (bottom left) was captured right inside a blueberry blossom and the picture shows a lot of pollen.The honeybee (top right) comes from a colony where bees specialize in productive pollen sources. (It’s hard to gather pollen from blueberries.) The bumblebee comes to the blueberries after gathering pollen elsewhere (bottom right).
