Well! I think I just saw a honeybee! Gasp! I bent down to have a closer look at this bee to make sure it actually was a honeybee gathering nectar from a daisy and it flew off. I’ve been looking for them when I am outside and this is the first one I have seen, if it really was a honeybee. If it was, I will see another. There seems to be a dearth of many kinds of insects so far this year and here it is mid-June already.
The bluebirds eat many insects so they could have put a dent in the populations of insect numbers in the yard. I’ve seen them fly-catching; something they have been doing more of this year than last.
