These bees better hurry and finish collecting for the autumn. The weather has turned from mild, like it was when I took this photo a few days ago, to rain, wind, and up the mountain, snow.
On Friday I posted what I thought was going to be my last photo of Mt Hood before it snowed up there. I was right! The snow started accumulating over the weekend and has already reached a foot and a half at Timberline Ski Area. Down where I live, the wind and rain were fairly intense, and I am sure these bees were not out much in that weather!
