The buzz, buzz, buzzing

On a warm spring-like day, a honey bee forages for pollen on a small wildflower in a pasture near my home in western Oregon on Saturday, Feb. 9, 2013.

I keep two hives nearby so these are likely bees from my hives. Honey bees live about 6 weeks. With winter coming to an end these bees are probably just learning how to gather pollen for the first time.
