Clone test.

This is a test to see if the clone of beetography works…it does!

1.  Beautiful white flowers, not as thick as black locust.

2.  A single branch with flowers.

3. A bumble bee queen with pollen.

4.  The same girl

5. Cropped vertically.

6.  A few days back I saw a tree blooming in front of the IM West. I thought it was a Meliaceae, since the flowers were not typical at all for a legume! but honey bees were there. Dr. Telewski said it was Kentucky coffee tree (Gymnocladus dioicus. Fabaceae).  Today (May 24th, 2012) I saw a male tree in the Beal Botanical Garden, almost ready to bloom.  Pete who works at the garden says the tree is diecious, meaning they have male and female trees.  I am assuming the ones I shot were females. So there you go! two trees blooming now with Kentucky in their names…both should have nectar and pollen for honey bees.

7. I had to use my 180 mm Macro to get larger bees.

8. Side view.

9.
