Rabbitbrush attracts honey bees too

Rabbitbrush, like many natives plants, attracts a variety of wild critters. Although I usually seek out butterflies on rabbitbrush, it also attracts wild honeybees and other insects. In fact, I was surprised to see many honeybees slurping nectar from the flowers on the many rabbitbrush plants on the Canon City Riverwalk, a good thing since there has been a lot of news about bee populations plummeting. It may be that I just hadn't noticed the many honeybees before because the yellow on their bodies blends in so well with the rabbitbrush blossoms.
