Honeybees

Today, I had honeybees feeding in the garden. It’s the first time I’ve seen honeybees in the garden this year. There were about half a dozen all feeding on the poppies.

I have seen bumblebees feeding on these poppies too but at the moment they seem to be more interested in Runner bean (Bombus hortorum) and Nasturtium flowers (Bombus lucorum agg.).

About Murtagh's Meadow

As an ecologist I have always had an interest in nature. I love gardening and would spend all day outdoors if I could. I also enjoy taking photographs and writing. I live in the west of Ireland with my young family.
