Now that’s a bumblebee

Posted by blueberrytalk on June 27, 2009

The search for bumblebee pictures has taken me to the Kihei Surfside in south Kihei, Maui. (see blogroll)  Honeybees were enjoying the same flower as the bumblebee in the picture. While here we are enjoying some excellent Lehua Honey.

Lehua honey comes purely from the Lehua blossom which is the flower of the ‘Ohi’a tree, a beautiful, native hardwood found in verdant, rolling pastures 4,000 feet up the north side of Mauna Kea volcano. This creamy, spreadable honey has a unique, volcanic-mountain, floral taste. Source:http://www.volcanoislandhoney.com/honey.htm
