This evening, while sitting outside on the back patio, I saw some honeybees giving my hummingbird feeder a good workover. Several bees were lapping up the sweet red sugar water and returning to their hive (somewhere east) via flying in between my and my neighbors house.
I decided to try a little experiment and doused the bees with powdered sugar. I wanted to see if the same bees were returning to the feeder. Sure enough, I saw the same bees coming back, time and time again.
The kids thought this was pretty cool. So did I.
