Bees and wasps

The quest for pollen continues. The wasps and bees are getting a bit frenzied now. These pictures were taken early in AM before they start getting aggressive. So many different kinds of bees in the garden!

The last wasp has a huge drop of water in it’s mouth. Wasps will collect excess water from their nests and spit it out somewhere else. This water removal helps protect their larvae and keeps nest healthy.
