I was lucky enough to snap this photo of a bumble bee enjoying a rose. I understand that bees of all types are in short supply. Many scientists have become alarmed by the fact that about 60%-70% of American bee colonies have collapsed. A number of theories for this have been put forward, but no one really has the answer. We need bees to pollinate fruits and flowers and nuts. Bees are especially vital in the pollination of almonds, apples and blueberries, three of my favorite foods!
