It's that time of year when the ivy produces berries.
And when it's not raining, the hum of buzzing fills the air.
Here is a honey bee approaching a stalk of ivy berries.
Note the orange pollen on its left leg in its pollen basket.
And here is another honey bee on another stalk of ivy berries.
Note the orange pollen on its right hind leg in the pollen basket.
I also observed hover flies and a carpenter bee on the berries, but they weren't still long enough for me to capture good images.
