Bumble Bee enjoying the heather bed


Bumble Bee enjoying the heather bed

This is one of several Bumble bees crawling all over the heather. I had not noticed before but they do seem to be choosing the white over the pink heathers.

I know they see colour differently from ourselves, but I wondered how this differs. I found this site:

Interesting.

It is very interesting to see how Monets colour perceptions changed after his eye op. From what is said about the bees sight I would have thought they might prefer the pink because there is a blue tinge to it. We live and learn and thank you for pointing me to that website. Thank you lilcrawford.
