I like bees.


Bee encountered on Moraine Ridge
After hiking down Jack Main Canyon.
Observed Friday June 30, 2013

Bumble Bee Moraine Ridge, Yosemite National Park.

About 8550 feet on Moraine Ridge, ironically near "The Beehive."

Note the dude is working the probiscus, which looks like it's bending in pursuit of a small salt crystal. I figured I was cool with the bumbler getting his salt fix, as I was fascinated with the pollen pouch and its general design.

Come on in and let me take a closer look at you!
