Bumble Bees & Thistle

Late last evening I found these bumblebees to congregating on a single thistle bloom during a light rain. I don’t know what was so special about this one particular flower as others nearby were devoid of bees.

They must know something we don't.
They seem to be good little bees all working together.
Nice find!

They work very hard for what they get.

Well composed and nice and sharp! Excellent photo!

Interesting comments. Maybe they'd already harvested the nectar from the others? Either way, it's a cool photo!

Hi Coy,
Funny shot. This was probably one of the well-konwn honey bar of the area :-)
