Bees aplnety here in Hawaii. Big black bumble bees, little yellow and black ones, paper wasps, all the usual denizens.
Though, speaking of bees and strangeness, I did notice one thing, maybe it's normal, maybe not, but I feel like I should mention it here....The last
few times I've been out windsurfing I've seen 2 or 3 bees out over the ocean. Like, way out there, away from the beach. I usually go about a mile
offshore, and several times now I've had bees flying right next to me. The winds constantly blow towards the beach (on this side of the island) so
they didn't get blown out there, they were flying into 25 mph headwinds to get out over the water.
(a)They are migrating between the islands
(b)They are disoriented and aren't supposed to be that far out over the water
(c)The bees I've seen are just the stupid ones that can't figure it out
Location: Island of Oahu, Hawaii
Observation: Various flowering potted plants around my house - 5 -10 bees sighted per day
Observation: Approximately 1 mile mile offshore, over open ocean, 2-3 bees
But other than that, which I'm sure is perfectly normal, bees seem to be doing fine here. I always see them flying around my basil plant If I don't
cut the little white flowers off.
