Beautiful Bees


please click on photo to see bees up close

Does anyone know what type of flower this is? I came across it saturday in the teaching garden at the Farmingdale State College. There were so many bees buzzing around this flower patch, I was hoping I would catch one in a snapshot. Luckily I caught two! please click on this photo to get a better view of them. Thank you beautiful bees.

What a wonderful image, Lily!
I like the flower, the deep green of the foliage, the blue sky on the left.

Beautiful bees. Beautiful flowers (although I don't know its name).

Amazing bee shots!
Don't hold me to it but the flower looks like Angel's Trumpet.

A beautiful flower, and I think maybe Carletta is right about the Angel's Trumpet but don't hold me to that either.

Great capture on the bees, the one in flight is great.

Thanks for visiting,

Yes, I would give Angel's Trumpet a heads up. It looks like that to me and the bees would like it and I suspect the hummingbirds do too. I don't think it grows here where I live owing to the cold winters. It might not be hardy. I don't know as I have never seen it here.

I don't know the flower, but it's beautiful. Great bee shots, too. You even caught one of them in flight!

This angel's trumpet grows in temperate New Zealand and also in the highlands of Malaysia.

Grows to a tall shrub.
