Poppy Pool of Plenty

 
Ahhhh....yellow poppies!
 
 
Annoying as I find these yellow poppies, popping up everywhere....
 
 
....it was an absolute pleasure to just sit & watch a bee positively swim in his own personal pool of pollen.
 
 
I'm not sure if he was drunk as he quite literally rolled round & around the delicate bloom.
 
 
He couldn't have got that far when eventually he took off...intoxicated & weighed down by heavy, yellow shopping bags.

I bet he got into trouble when he got home. Binge drinking during the day. What is the world coming to ?

Oh, I wish I had yellow poppies popping up everywhere, Jane! I can't seem to grow them here. You're garden is quite the watering hole ... bees flying under the influence. I enjoyed your post. :-)

They kind of annoy me as well Jane, Myra seems to love them but I pull some of them out when she isn't looking. You wont tell her, will you.

Ha, he does look like he's going for a blissful swim there! I have recently seen a couple bees in my garden displaying some curious behavior, such as holding onto a stem for dear life in very odd positions - I have wondered if they had been on a binge of some sort as well!

ps. Send some of those poppies my way - they would pretty much be welcome anywhere in my yard!

Don't you just love getting lost in these types of moments! Glad you caught this lil'guy.

Great photos of bees having fun while gathering. similiarly I have a series of photos of honeybees displaying pretty much the same behaviour.
