regal

The bees are out and about.
I see them stepping on the lower petals of the purple lupins, allowing gravity to help them open the flower, to unlock the sweetness at its heart.
Honey for their queen.
There legs are roundly cuffed with yellow pollen.
There coats are pin-striped; black and gold.
Regal colors for a regal insect.
