Wild and Domestic Bees

Grassland bee (note the pollen)….

Most people here don’t know these beauties exist, and by that I mean both the flower and the bee.

And some domestic bees (only a couple with pollen … feel free to click the pic to have a closer look).

Most people here don’t realize that farms are multi-million dollar industrial factories. I bet the bees know.

Because hives like this are moved very quickly to allow for pesticide spraying in the orchard, they are continually foraging in emerging conditions, that do not bring wealth to the hive.
