Honeybees on oregano
Honeybees foraging oregano
Interesting to look at the pollen-filled "saddlebags". Those represent a lot of pollen collecting by the hard working honeybee.
Lots of honeybees on the oregano flowers.
Viewing the enthusiasm honeybees show for oregano, I should plant a lot more of it next year in the bee garden. It's a bit too big for the iris / culinary herb beds.
