Here's some interesting facts about bees. There are about 20,000 species of bees worldwide. Some species may not yet have been discovered, and many are either not named or have not been well studied. Bees are found throughout the world except at the highest altitudes, in polar regions, and on some small oceanic islands. The greatest diversity of bee species is found in warm, arid or semiarid areas, especially in the American Southwest and Mexico. Bees range in size from tiny species only 2 mm (0.08 in) in length to rather large insects up to 4 cm (1.6 in) long. Many bees are black or gray, but others are bright yellow, red, or metallic green or blue. From Everything About Bees.
Bees are disappearing at an alarming rate in the US. Many claim the culprit is an ailment called Colony Collapse Disorder. Click here for more info.
Today's image is another one I shot while on a walk a couple of weekends ago. It's another one of a bee busily gathering pollen to take back to the hive. Interesting thing, he didn't seem bothered by me at all. Nice of him though, he didn't bother me either! Well, enjoy the products and have a great weekend. I'll be enjoying some time away for a few days. We'll be back next week with more great Zazzle products for your enjoyment.
