Honey Bee Meet and Greet

Scroll through the above photos

By Chuck Cagara

Honey Bees are proliferating around the yard amidst the newly-flowering plants.

Here two are about to engage in a “Meet-‘N-Greet.”

Next we see the long, red proboscis, the bendable straw-like tongue, used to drink and exchange food with other bees.  This bee is guiding the proboscis along the moist surface of the drinking tray we put out for small animals like chipmunks and squirrels.  Birds use it, too.
