Smoke Trees are Buzzin' with Bees

The smoketree flowers are so small it's easy to walk right by and miss them. Up close they are really beautiful and loaded with bees these days. Got lots of photos today for reference. Can't wait to start another bee painting. I have one in the works now, and another large car in watercolor. Hopefully, can finish both this week. The orange mass on the lower bee photo is not part of the flower. These bees have large orange outgrowths on the backs of their rear legs. Quite unusual.
