Macro Monday - Bumble Bee

Bumble Bee at work sipping nectar and pollinating flowers in the process.  Notice the full pollen  baskets on the hind legs.

What a great shot, I didn't realise that bees had 'pollen baskets' on their back legs, he'd better quit while he can still take off! Excellent macro.

My thoughts exactly, I wonder just how much pollen a bee can carry?
Clever photograph.

Beautiful shot!...just don't let him get up your pant leg!! It has happened to me and it wasn't fun.
