One knows spring has truly arrived when the bumble bees return to collecting pollen for their hives. This beautiful bumble bee is enjoy the rich pollen in the multitude of Forsythia flowers on this bush. She is contentedly buzzing from one little flower to the next. I captured her as she dives into this flower to carefully gather its pollen. Some green leaves are already showing, so soon, the bees will have to look elsewhere for pollen!
