2015—So Much For Bee Guards

When I went out to refill the hummingbird feeders, I noticed that all of the plastic flowers were clogged with honey bees jostling for position to get the remnants of sugar water deposited on the bright yellow bee guards. So much for bee guards. The hummingbirds actually had to find nectar in a single pineapple sage flower stalk while the bees swarmed around their feeders. A couple of the bees seemed to be grappling and they finally fell off the edge of the flower, still clinging to each other.
