The poppies are blooming in my garden.
And a few days ago I ran inside and told Mr. Jenny he had to come and see the bees.
I told him how they would fly up to the flower really slowly and circle it...
...and then they would dive into the center of the flower and after awhile roll around until their little bodies would be coated totally yellow with the pollen. After they looked like little yellow pollen balls, they would fly off slowly, bobbing and weaving and intoxicated by pollen! It was so cool.
He didn't believe me.
I guess he thinks I get all dramatic about stuff or something.
The next day he went out there with the camera and he captured the bees UP TO the rolling around and drunk with pollen part!
"There were bees flying all around my head out there," he told me later after I downloaded the pictures to find he had only captured half of the drunken bee/pollen orgy thing.
"D'oh," I replied, "You mean a big, strong guy like you was afraid of a teensy, weensy pollen drunk bee?"
I think he was annoyed.
I think I caught him googling 'surviving marriage with an overly dramatic and sarcastic wife', but I'm not totally sure about that.
In the interest of showing you some cool pictures, I'm gonna share what he captured.
What's that you say?
Why didn't I take the pictures?
Are you crazy!
There's all kinds of bees out there!
