Endangered Bees

As I was having lunch on the deck this afternoon, I was delighted to see bees buzzing around the petunias. The species seems to be in trouble and I have noticed fewer visiting the Spring blossoms than we normally see. This little guy tried to get to the pollen through the open flower but he was so heavy the blossom collapsed with his weight. He finally landed at the base and went after the pollen through the flower. Clever guy!
