It has been a long time since I've seen so many honeybees on the corn tassels! Today, they were here in large numbers!

Standing nearby, I could hear the humming of their wings.

I could see the little puffs of pollen falling from the Staminate flowers down to the silk (stigma).

I could see their corbicula or pollen baskets... and thought of the bees returning to their hives with the pollen from my corn.

Welcome back, bees!
