A lone honeybee stayed busy gathering pollen in the black ash tree in our backyard.

It was obvious from the size of its pollen sacs that it was finding plenty to take back to the hive. I wonder how much pollen the sacs can actually hold?

Ash trees are pollinated by the wind … and maybe with a little help from the honeybee.
