love the haiku. the patches of colour on the 'knees' are pollen they have collected. Each plant has its own colour and you can tell which plants they have been collecting form. I have a pollen colour chart like a paint chart.Sally E
love the haiku. the colour on the "knees" is pollen. you can tell which plants the bees have been to by the colours. You can get a pollen chart like a paint chart.

You're the bee's knees, Juliet. Also the cat's pajamas.
What a beautiful haiku, made more poignant by the demise of bees around the world.
I like this - I'd never given much consideration to the color of a bee's 'knees' until now.
Sweet and cute. I really like it!
I love the sounds in this :)
Very well written haiku. Love your blog, great work :)
I didn't know bees had knees. I thought it was a just an expression. Wonderful haiku.
