The bees were cleaning up the leftover hummingbird food this morning when a rain storm flooded in. They scurried for shelter only to reappear an hour or so later. The feeder had filled considerably with rainwater, but apparently the bees weren’t too concerned. They continued to collect the now-much-less-syrupy concoction.
It just means they’ll have to work extra hard to evaporate the moisture from it.
BEEattitude for Day # 287:Blessed are those birds who share their leftovers with us, for we shall join them in happy flight.
