Texas Drought Hard on Bees Too





A lot of what I think are feral bees have been mobbing our humming bird feeders in the back yard so I decided to put out a feeder just for the bees. They have been hitting the sugar syrup like nobody's business. I guess this drought is extremely hard on all creatures. If you have the chance to help out until it rains with food or water do what you can. Here are some pictures of the bees you might like. I put out a small hive just in case they decide they need a new home. Wild Ed

So many bees!! Im shocked at how many just showed up to get some refreshment....shouldn't be though, as I know my dad is a "whisperer" to every animal he comes in contact with.

Hey Angel, thanks for the comment. Hope all is well with you. You will have to inspect my new hive with me when you come visit again. Dad

I'll be honest and say I am not a big fan of bees, actually they scare the hell out of me.
Pretty cool pics though.
