At sunset, there were about a half-dozen bees working hard on our crown flower. I typically only see bees in the yard in the early morning and usually on the gigantic-overgrown basil. However, I cut back the basil (it was taking over walking paths!) so the bees are now more interested in the other flowers we have. They were so calm and let me photograph them for about five minutes. Thank you pollinators for all that you do.
