So cool! Are these all the same bee? I've noticed that the bumblebees do a lot of the heavy lifting around here. Honey bees are around but not as much, maybe I don't have enough in my garden yet. I will check out your link.

I don't know what he had in mind with this locust, but it couldn't have been good (for the locust that is). [/quote
