Not your garden variety

As my kids and I were checking out our local garden tonight, we noticed several bees on the sunflowers that appeared to be “resting”. So I thought today would be a good day to post a few articles on our friends, the bees.

That said, the first one might actually be able to help me learn more about this behavior. It’ s a podcast entitled “Wayne Esais on Honeybee Behavior” at EarthSky.

If that doesn’t do the trick, then maybe this review of a book that I’m hoping to get to might help. The article is “Fruitless Fall” by Devereaux Bell at the Mother Nature Network.

Finally (and speaking of behavior), I found this article a couple of weeks ago and like a lot of recent articles on our animal friends across this planet, it too talks about the reprecussions of climate change. It’s entitled “Hornets Suffocate in Bee Ball” by Rachel Ehrenberg at Science News.

Night, night!
