I've been thinking about the last time I saw bees.
We used to have heaps of bees, some in the peppercorn tree near the horses, we all got on just fine, horses never bothered the bees and they all shared the water trough.
A gumtree that is up the back paddock, used to have a hive in it every year. Snakes shared it with the bees, and all got along as sweet as could bee.
Now for years, there has been less and less of the little critters.
The dogs and I found this walking along a back road, I sent the dogs off ahead to get away and snuck in for closer pictures.
