Nice gardens MrILoveTheAnts. I'm looking forward to watching your new native plants grow this summer via your garden videos. Thanks for sharing!

I thought this was pretty cool.

Scan over the photo to view the man behind the scene that had created it.

Great site. It is hard to find the balance between native plants and plants honey bees work and have shared this with friends who are starting honey bees as well.

When I share I also add on that native plants will also attract butterflies and beneficial insects that should grow without much maintenance and works towards a world of more abundance.

Thanks for sharing your experiences.

Yes stay away from feral honeybees in Florida. I think any state below Georgia they're just assumed to be Africanized and highly aggressive. I love finding wild hives when I can though.

That's exactly what I was wondering when we ran into them. If they were the killer bees. Can you tell if that's what they were by the photo?

Is the one in #27 a true bee or a mimic? It flies different than the bees from this area.
It hovers in place for a while then darts back and forth much the same as the dragonflies do when protecting their area.
