One kind of bee was out today, gathering nector from two or three types of crocus (but not all).
Yesterday on NPR's Science Friday, Ira Flatow posted a video and hosted the curator of the bee collection at the Museum of Natural History in NYC. He has been in that position for 51 years. It's worth tracing down the program.
I am trying out close-up rings on my camera. I apologize that the depth of field isn't broader. Amateur.
