Are You My Bee?

Now that I have two hives of my own, I have begun paying much closer attention to the bees that service my garden. I know there is really no way to know if the bees I am seeing are my bees, but I was surprised to find how many bees are certainly not my bees at all.

This gal could be my bee:

Not this hunk of a bee:

But this one might be mine:

    Gorgeous photos! I have the same thoughts as I work the garden. We have two hives and anytime is see bees around town (located in my bees foraging area) I wonder if they are mine.
