Pollen Pants!

Both places I visited last weekend, Drumlin Farm and the Boston Nature Center, had a ton of bees which is great because...well because bees are great. And they have pantaloons! If you've never noticed take a close look the next time you see a honey bee or bumble bee and see if it's got pants on. The orange spots on the bee's legs in the image are clumps of collected pollen. Industrious little critters.
