The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
Oh that is just beautiful.
Wonderful creature.... Ah, well, of course, you too, Jams. :)
They are indeed Sean.. better than me!
Beautiful...but it nearly came off the screen when I enlarged the photo. I said, "Please, please stay with the flower. Nothing sweet and nourishing in here."
Good lord. I know they're wonderful but I'd be scared to get that close!
It does look very impressive when you enlarge the photo, but not really to be scared of as bumble bees rarely sting (and only the females can, the males have no sting)
Pollen sacs - vital topic today.
That's a great photo Jams! Bumblebees are so good at collecting pollen. We see them a lot on our Hebe.
Thansk! Welshcakes they are usually harmless. James, given the decline in bee numbers it is more important than you think!
And don't forget the paper wasps! They are cool too. *snickering at pollen sacs*Jams, see http://hypatiaofcalifornia.blogspot.com/2010/07/25-greatest-fictional-lawyers-who-are.html
Wow, that's a beauty. The bee, the flower, the photo, and the moment.
But do they have pollen sacs ike that Deb!Thanks Stan!
