The Birds & The Bees

Earlier I posted a couple of photos of the Bumble Bees that have been taking advantage of the nectar we offer to the Hummingbirds.

I was able to get some photos of Hummers feeding in the presence of the bees. They truly don’t seem to mind that the bees are hogging some of the feeders. I suppose the fact that we have numerous feeders available helps that situation.

Here’s a female that seems to have a little summen’ on her beak. I have read that hummingbirds eat spiders or the insects that are caught in their webs, which is why I sometimes film them with spider webs on their beaks.
