3. Thanks, this is good to know.

I was stepping up onto the little dock on our pond when I was swarmed around my ankles and I heard them. I was out taking pictures so it was a really lucky happening. I just stopped and when they settled down I was amazed by how many there were. I tried to see where they would go after leaving but was unable to see. I have pretty good idea where they are. We have been really pretty lucky here to always see them around the farm but if it were not for Mason bees and Bumblebees I am not sure our garden would have been pollinated the last two years. The Honeybees were scarce. This is encouraging.

They looked like they were just stopping to drink. It was really fun to watch them, I just kept taking photos and they just left me alone.
