Irish Valentine Bee?

A Honey Bee having a rare Febraury 1st snack on an early Slowdrop flower, in the Shakespeare Garden of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. I love the detail of his little feet! My wife noticed the green heart shape on the flower. Looks like this guy has Valentine's and St. Patty's Day both covered!

 

What made this visit to BBG even more memorable was the Little Brown Bat flying overhead, just before I shot this honey bee. Remember this was February 1st!

 

Irish Blessing: "May the Good Lord take a liking to you, but not too soon!"

 

**PLEASE: NO MULTIPLE OR STRING INVITATIONS!!**
