Bumble Bees in the Garden

It has been so hot and wet here lately. Thunder storms in the early evening have made it difficult to spend time in the garden after dinner.  The humidity is very high and things start heating up pretty early in the day but this morning I thought I might spend some time weeding and tending to the garden, even with the high humidity. There were quite a few "busy bees" in the garden to keep me company. Couldn't resist getting my camera and trying to record their activities.

The squash blossoms are plentiful right now.
Look at all the pollen on this little guy.



It was really enjoyable to spend some time
with these intriguing insects.

And aren't these squash blossoms beautiful?






How do such tiny wings keep this guy in the air?
