Bumble Bees

Over the past several days I have noticed that there are few bumble bees near any of my flowers. The photos today were taken in July, 2004 on the lupines in my back yard. There were lots of bees that year but I haven't seen many over the past couple of days.

I know that there are problems with honey bees in other parts of North America, but am wondering if the lack of bees in this area is because of the cool weather we had in May and June.

Thanks for the positive comments.

If any one else reads this, please leave a comment about the bees in your area.

One person from California sent me photos of bees on her flowers. They will be on line by October at www.mqp.k12.nf.ca/photoalbum
