    I can relate to this after a group of buff-tailed bumblebees took over a spare birdhouse (we have plenty). They make for great companions (both bees and bumblebees)!

    nectar harvest…
    the married wings in flight
    of honey bees

    Note:
    (Honey bees belong to the order of Hymenoptera, which refers to the wings of the insects… A plausible etymology involving Hymen, the Ancient Greek god of marriage, is that these insects have “married wings” in flight. Derived from WIKIPEDIA)

    Naturous, and by you Meredith, its time so well seen!
    __ I see, under those 'flight lines' the squirrels as they -squirrel away- their winter larder.

    in the thought of snow
    as goldenrods turn to dust
    acorns squirreled away
