Really liked this and it reminded me of seeing bees on Broom as a child.Original is here. http://solarbeez.com/2015/05/10/bees-on-broom-scotch-broom/#comment-10969
This is far from National Geographic video quality, but it does show the intimate relationship between the bee and the flower. The bee lands on the flower petals, spreads out the lower ones, then triggers the pollen release possibly by pushing something with it’s head…I couldn’t see that part, but when it happens, it’s sudden and strong, like an explosion.
May 3…Here’s a pretty variegated Scotch Broom (Cytisus scoparius). You can tell that a bee has been there , because the stamen have already popped up.
I shot this video to show what our bees are doing when they leave the hive. It may surprise you. 🙂
