The bees aren't all dead

The magnolia blossom with the bee was taken on May 22, 2008 in my front yard. All the blossoms were covered with bees sucking pollen. The previous bloom was a cotton blossom from a farm in the Mississippi delta near Clarksdale.

Gorgeous bloom. No bees that I saw on our apple trees this year. And very few on the lilacs. Didn't have to be careful sniffing them. Sad.

That's a great shot! And I LOVE the shots of the alpaca. Thanks ShareCropper. What a cool thing to do.... visit the alpaca.
