First bug and flower of the year

I took a walk in Dogtown yesterday and came across quite a few of these burrows. They are being made by bees.

The bee backs out of the hole as it pushes the sand with its legs.

In other news, I spied the first Bluets of the season!

Bees strike me as the most industrious of insects aside from ants. I love your bluet image. It's gorgeous. Carol

I prefer the blues to the bees!

This is so cool. I wouldn't have known those burrows were made by bees, so it was an educational post for me.
