Someone has planted a big patch of poppies on the lawn downstairs from our flat. When I walked over to check them out on Saturday morning, they were positively humming with bees.
I tried to photograph the bees in action, but it's hard to get a good shot of an erratically flying bee. I took about a hundred photos (it seemed) and these three are the best shots.
I've never heard of bees making honey from poppies, but they were certainly into the pollen. Would poppy honey have narcotic properties? Hmmm...
