    Default Shedding off the excess weight

    ID: Honey Bee

    Came across this interesting sight of a pollen drenched honey bee taking a time off to shed off the excess pollen off its tail. It seemed as if the bee was uncomfortable flying around with the pollen all over its body. It was shrugging off as much as it could from its back using the hind legs, few of which can be seen dumped onto the leaves

    Nice behavior captured. Good details. It seems due to so many pollens on it, it is not able to fly. Nicely captured. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice one. Shows an interesting role played by the bee in nature. How much of a crop is this? I would like to have some more space to show the habitat more. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,

    I guess it was a very less crop, may be 15% of crop
