Bee Drinking Water

Warm days in the Netherlands. No rain. Therefore, I am watering my plants in the backyard. And look, I have a little visitor. This bee drinks some water on the leaves of my "forget-me-nots". Did you know that bees drank water? They swallow the water and store it in their crops before flying home.

Bij verzamelt water
Warm, warm, warm rond de Utrechtse Heuvelrug. Geen regen, terwijl andere delen van het land wel regen hebben gehad. Daarom geef ik mijn potplanten in de achtertuin zelf wat water. En kijk, ik heb gelijk een kleine bezoeker. Deze bij verzamelt water op de blaadjes van mijn vergeet-me-nietjes.

  4. Fantastic pictures. Bees are usually moving and therefore not easy to get a good picture, but you have done just that.
