Yellow-Faced Bumble Bees in the White California Poppies

The lovely White California Poppies "Alba" that I planted last year are lush again after winter and spring rains. They are such lovely blossoms, appreciated by the bees as well.

And here are two yellow-faced bumble bees collecting pollen from the poppies.

Here is a shot from above the bee.

Look at those bright orange pollen baskets.

And you can see its left antenna.

You can see the pollen flying out of the poppy as the bumble bee buzzes it out.
