It is too late this year to photograph bees, however, it is a good time to reflect on the number of bees around this part of Holyrood throughout the summer. When dandelions appeared this spring, I didn't see many bumblebees around at all. I saw the first large bees around the time the Dandelions were just about finished blooming. Then a few smaller bees started visiting the few dandelions that were left. When the wild roses started to bloom, there were a few more bees, but not a lot. I continued to photograph them into the fall when they constantly visited the sunflowers in my yard. Overall, I would say that there were fewer bees this summer in my yard.
