|Coming in for a landing|
While I was away it rained for days. The little dish soon overflowed with fresh rain water. When I returned I found my honeybees using it as a source of water. Each day I refill it with fresh water for them. There are many birdbaths to drink from scattered among the gardens on our property, however, I think this is their favorite. I love to sit and watch them dance, perch and sip the cool water with their long probosci. They don't have a care in the world that I am there, watching. This year's birthday present really was a surprise for me and the bees.
