A perfect match

June blueberries start to blossom just when the queen bumblebees become active after winter hibernation. It’s rare for a bumblebee to pose for picture. The queens usually want to buzz around you in large circles.

Junes finally bloom

Posted by blueberrytalk on May 14, 2011

We can’t remember a year when the blueberry bloom has been so late. The earliest variety, June, is a gathering place for bumblebees. It is so late that some of the worker bumblebees have already emerged from their nests. Click on the picture to enlarge this honeybee sucking nectar  from a June blossom.
