Crepe Myrtle Attraction

My crepe myrtles (Lagerstroemia indica) are covered in balls of flowers at the moment, and I'm not the only one who loves them:
The bees were mainly gathering the pollen today. They collect an amazing amount in each trip. Look at the one below; the pollen sacs on her hind legs look full to bursting, yet she still wants more before she returns to the hive.


  1. she's so greedy, i hope she can take off ok like that

  2. Wow Vireya, action shots! Such beautiful photos, and so well taken!
