Nectar feed

Almost as impressive as this year's bloom of frontyard rhodies are the nonstop foraging bumblebees gorging themselves in the berms - barely taking notice of the amateur photographer hovering a respectable distance nearby. 

Of course these buzzing workaholics are well aware of their small windows of opportunity for loading up on nectar and pollen from rhododendrums, which seem to begin their downhill slides by the time we decide we can't get enough of them.
