It’s a gorgeous day in Seattle today and most of my mason bees have emerged from their cocoons. There are so many flying in and out of the nesting tubes, I fear I will need to buy more tubes or they will run out of places to lay their eggs!
I have a light work schedule today, so I went out the front porch and laid down to watch my mason bee gals at work. I could have stayed there all day, they’re so fascinating to watch! They pretty much ignored me and kept working. Some would fly into a tube, put down bee bread, then emerge from the tube, only to back in to lay an egg. I captured much of the action on these videos.
