Bumblebees pollinating a magnolia tree

Early this morning (about 6:30 a.m.) as I was leaving my girlfriends house, I spotted these bumblebees (note the corbicula on hind legs) polinating a magnolia tree. Part of me wanted to fold back the petals of the flower so I could see the bees better, but I decided to leave it alone!

We nature photographers don't like to interfere! :)

  1. So what is the difference between honey bees and bumble bees? :) Very nice video.
