Earlier this fall we were enjoying the autumn wild flowers as we walked though the Carrollton Greenbelt Park. These purple Morning Glories were particularly striking. On closer inspection, we found them abuzz with Honey Bees.

The bees were busy collecting nectar from the flowers. They would virtually disappear deep into the petals of the Morning Glories. When they reemerged, by carefully backing out of the flower, they would be absolutely covered with grains of pollen.

And then on to the next flower!
