I went to the Carpinteria garden recently and found an unusual amount of honey bees hanging around the garden, this gave me the opportunity to capture a bunch of bees up-close including this little guy.

This honey bee was busy pollination this white rose flower long enough for me to get a really good shot of him.

This photo is so up-close you can see the little pollen sacs on the honey bees legs. The pollen sacs are an important part of the pollination process. When the bee flies away, it carries the sac to other flowers, allowing pollen to fall out of the sacs and onto the flower.

The best part of visiting this botanical garden is all the different variety of exotic flowers that attracts lots of different wildlife such as these honey bees.
