Busy bees

See that honey bee there on the Montauk daisy? There was an absolute symphony of humming bees—dozens of them—on this late blooming flower bed this weekend. This fellah looks as though he's wearing little orange boxing gloves on his legs, but that's actually all the nectar he's collected. There is supposedly a bee colony collapse disorder happening around the world, but you wouldn't know it by watching all of these bees in action, busy making sweet honey! Below are various shades of local honey on display at this year's Topsfield Fair.
