Art meets science in nature every day.

Ever wonder how honey bees can find the exact flowers they are after?

A total of 170 odorant receptor genes have been found in the bee genome sequence. That's huge!

They employ olfaction for locating flowers as well for social communication. A foraging worker bee encounters a crazy array of flower odors to choose from, yet is able to discriminate between them using subtle olfactory signals.

Bees are important. Create habitats for them and they will return the favor by pollinating and producing tasty honey. Their work as pollinators is something we can't feasibly recreate.

A rogue bean plant has popped up amongst my sugar snap peas.
And other pretty things in the garden. Flowers, pugs and bugs pollinating my eggplant!

Love the way the sun shines through the flowers on my seed grown Mexican Palo verde, Parkinsonia aculeata. Very popular with the native bees too!
