bees in clover: an update

Yesterday, I said that we didn't see bees in the clover. This morning, I was sitting at my table and much to my surprise I saw a European honey bee doing just what I recalled they used to do when I was a child, drinking nectar from the white clover flowers in our lawn. I quickly took a couple photographs to show and record this for my readers. I also enjoyed a nice fat bumble bee on the white milkweed flowers; notice his hind legs full of yellow pollen.
