I love the bees knees and have been trying for ages to find a bee with good knees to photograph so I was very happy when this little creature made its way into our flat and rested on a cat ornament for long enough for me to take a photo. (edited to add: We then helped it to escape by letting it crawl onto a piece of paper which we then put out of the window). I'm really pleased with the photo too as the knees are lovely and yellow! I've seen lots of bees recently, several times I've seen buddleia bushes or flower meadows covered in bees, which is very heartening given that bees across the world are struggling.

Sandy over at gardenpath has been taking bee photos recently too, you can see them here.
AscenderRises also posts plenty of photos of bees, which are listed here (click on the titles to see the photos).
I recently posted a poem about bees here and on Bolts of Silk a poem about bees by Howard Good here.
