Travel Theme: Work

Ailsa of “Where’s My Backpack?” is in WORK mode this week. If you would like to join in with her challenge then please do. Everyone is welcome.

The life span of worker bee is a modest six weeks during the colony’s active season. However, worker bees live longer (four to eight months) during the less active winter months. These winter workers are loaded with protein and are sometimes referred to as “Fat Bees.”

Part of their lives are out foraging for pollen.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. Cheers Pete! The top bee was so drunk with pollen it actually fell off the sunflower it was on and landed on the leaf beside me!

    1. I’ve been having problems seeing photos on blogs all week MrsC. Sometimes they are there, sometimes not. I don’t know if it s a problem with Chrome (as I have tried IE to view some posts and they have been fine) or WP. I think you use a Mac don’t you? So suspect you are using Safari. Can you try a different browser?

        1. Thank you! That bee is the sharpest image anyway! You may see the one covered in pollen tomorrow. I have found that when I return to a blog that I can see the images. Goodness knows what’s going on though 😦

  1. Incredible photos Jude, love the bee covered in pollen, wow! I love bees as much as I despise wasps 😉 Hope you had a good weekend xx
