Our bees are always busy! This time of the year our worker bees (females) are kicking all the drones (males) out of the hive in order to conserve resources to survive the winter. 🐝🍯

Happy #pollinatormonday from the most charismatic of all pollinators: the honeybee. The highly adaptable honeybee makes its home on every continent in the world, with the exception of Antarctica. This honeybee is lightly dusted with pollen, a result of visiting up to 2,000 flowers per day in the summertime. Honeybees are masters of communication and can alert other bees in their hive of the location of food and other resources by performing a complex movement called the “waggle dance”. The bee will “waggle” its body in relation to the resource’s location using the sun as an orientation point, and will have different movements and speeds for the distance and direction of the food. If the sun changes its location in the time it takes the bee to return to the hive, it knows to account for this change and will still convey correct information to its coworkers. The other workers in the hive read this information and can then work together to bring the resources back to the hive. The language of honeybees is regarded as the most complex and symbolic of all animal communications, and scientists still don’t fully understand the depth of its complexity. Austrian ethologist Karl von Frisch was the first to crack the code of the waggle dance and won the Nobel Prize for this eye-opening discovery in 1973. This little bee’s job is to forage all day, but despite all its hard work, a single honeybee will only produce about 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey in its entire lifetime. Honey packs a powerful punch, though, as just an ounce of it could fuel a single bee to fly all the way around the world. Now that’s efficiency!

Image by @joelsartore | Right now, in Central and Southern Mexico, monarch butterflies are finishing their incredible 3,000 mile and 4-generation journey from the US and Canada and are settling in for the winter. This generation of monarchs will live happily in these warm climates for six to eight months until it is time to begin the whole journey again. They will then migrate back north for the summer, landing on milkweed to lay eggs for a new generation, and providing pollination to many plants along the way. With butterfly season coming to a close, we are wrapping up our #pollinatormonday campaign. Thank you so much for following us on our journey this summer! Pollinator Mondays may be coming to an end, but helping pollinators should never stop. Continue to support pollinators and help save the Great Monarch Migration by planting milkweed in the summer months, avoiding mowing before fall, and choosing to practice organic lawn and garden care.

Las #ABEJAS recogen el #POLEN de las #flores con sus PATAS y lo humedecen con NÉCTAR dándole forma de pequeñas bolas que transportan a la colmena para alimentar a las abejas obreras. Mediante estos viajes de flor en flor contribuyen a la #POLINIZACIÓN de muchas especies. Las #abejasmeliferas, han desarrollado en el TERCER PAR de PATAS una especie de CESTAS, también denominadas #corbiculas, a las que por medio de PEINES trasladan los granos de polen que se adhieren a su cuerpo, los cuales son transportados a la #colmena, donde se realiza todo el proceso de fermentación. Entre las #abejas sólo las corbiculadas acumulan y se alimentan de polen, lo que hacen tanto en estado adulto como larvario...
The #BEES collect the #POLLEN from the #flowers with their LEGS and moisten it with NECTAR giving it the shape of small balls that they transport to the hive to feed the worker bees. Through these trips from flower to flower they contribute to #POLLINATION of many species. #HONEYBEES, have developed in THIRD PAIR OF PAWS a kind of BASKETS, also called CORBICULES, to which by means of PEINES move the pollen grains that adhere to your body, which are transported to the hive, where the whole fermentation process is carried out. Among the bees only corbiculadas accumulate and feed of pollen, what they do in both adult and larval stages...💝🐝🙏💚

Pollinators doing pollinator things. They make it look so beautiful. Gulf fritillary (top left), common buckeye (eight of center), and a couple syrphid scattered throughout.

For #pollinatormonday we simply had to share this beautiful shot by @antoncrone of a bumble bee along the Liesbeek river. The honey bees' charismatic cousin only makes up 1% of bee species but has done a lot in defining the image of the bee in popular imagination #bees #bumblebee #southafrica #mothernature

Agora, no centro e no sul do México, as borboletas monarca estão terminando suas incríveis jornadas de quase 5 mil quilômetros e 4 gerações desde os EUA e o Canadá e se preparam para o inverno. Essa geração de monarcas viverá feliz nestes climas quentes por cerca de seis a oito meses, até que seja hora de começar a viagem inteira de novo.

Image by @joelsatore via @natgeo "This #pollinatormonday showcases a curious kinkajou from the New York State Zoo. This furry pollinator is native to Central and South America, and is a member of the Procyonidae family, making it a distant cousin of the Raccoon. The kinkajou has ankles that can rotate 180 degrees which allows it to run very quickly down trees to evade predators like the harpy eagle. The kinkajou is often known as the “honey bear” due to its habit of raiding beehives for their honey, much to the dismay of the bees. Its short, coarse fur is natural protection against angry bee stings. When not raiding hives, its five-inch tongue allows it to easily dip into the flowers of fruit-bearing trees in the rain forest. This long tongue coupled with an insatiable sweet tooth makes the kinkajou a valuable pollinator for many fruits and flowers in the rain forest. Though classified basically as a carnivore, the kinkajou will go from flower to flower, drinking nectar, and spreading the pollen on its fur to the next tasty snack. Now that’s a handy sweet tooth!
To see another image of this kinkajou check out @joelsartore!"

Last one today... back to my love of #symbolism ... I’m closing out my #socialmedia for the night, and checking messages, and a friend shared a post with me from the #nationalgeographic ...!The flight of the #monarchs to #Mexico . #ifivesaiditonceivesaiditamilliontimes : #butterflies always somehow appear before me in some way or another... just when I need it. To some, a #gardenangel has #whitefeatheredwings and lives in the clouds... but mine come in many #colorfulpatterns and float to my side every time I need a reminder: things are going to be ok... @phillyarocking -love you! #bodymetamorphic #transformationtuesday #butterflysymbolism #Repost @natgeo (@get_repost)
