Blue Bee

 Did you know there are blue bees? Some are navy blue or a brilliant royal blue. Although he is considered a blue bee, depending on the angle of the light, this particular guy tends to look greenish. He is iridescent, like a glass bead with a "blue iris" finish. Sometimes his fuzzy hind legs look violet. Mr Blue Bee has taken up residence in a decorative bird house. He carefully created a smaller opening and squeezed himself inside, then closed up the opening to seal himself in, away from predators. Each morning he nibbles out the opening just enough to go searching for pollen. The cycle continues each day. Yes, bees are busy, no matter what color they might be.
