About Today’s Photo:
It’s getting late in the season for pollinators. Though we’ve had only light frost at our place thus far, the number of bees has greatly diminished as most flowers are past their peak. Some mums out in our back garden attracted a couple of bumble bees however. In the cool morning neither of them were moving very quickly.
