I am still in the phase of watching my bees for minutes upon minutes constantly being amazed by their behaviors. I was impressed they could carry dead bees far from the hive and drop them. But, today, I saw one bring a piece of plant matter three times its size and drop it just short of the landing ramp. Wow! Do they try to bring back pollen by the bulk sometimes?

Never saw anymore than they could pack into their pollen baskets on their back legs. Find a plant they are working and watch them, fascinating.

I found a couple working on dandelions closer to our house...you are right, very fascinating to watch.
