I saw an acacia tree in bloom today. It was a most impressive sight.

In two minutes of looking, I saw at least 4 different species of bees on them. Mostly Bumble Bees and Carpenter bees.

There were like 3-5 bees on each blossom, and what looked like millions of blossoms on the tree. I've never seen so many bees in one place, but not one honey bee.

Has anyone seen honey bees working acacia?

What I saw looked a lot like this.....
