Photo challenge: yellow

Tiny flowers that provide the pollen.

    Thanks for the beautiful photos. That bee photo from behind is outstanding. Very nice. I don’t think it could cram even one more grain of pollen in.

    Where would we be without honeybees? Colony Collapse Disorder has me worried.

      Me too. The bees are struggling. I think pesticides are the biggest problem.
