On my vacation in Hilton Head Island, I went around the area looking for any type of bee I could find. I saw a small bee swarming around bushes and flowers. It is hard to tell by the picture, but it was beside one of the small yellow flowers.
This bees habitat was beside an open golf course. One characteristic, as mentioned on the US Forest Service website, of flowers that bees often visit are brightly colored with petals that are usually blue or yellow or a mixture of these. Keep in mind that bees cannot see the color red, so to them this particular yellow flower tended to stick out!
It was in the hot afternoon when I saw the bee. I enjoyed exploring and researching about bees and their habitats.
