Honey Bee on Crocus. For March in Indiana. After winter, it's great to see life coming back to the yard!

Adults fly year round
Adult honey bees can be seen any month of the year, but are uncommon in winter. See Winter World.(1)

I actually already have "Winter World" at home, but haven't read it yet. I'm going to move it to the top of my reading pile. Thanks so much for your comment, and for including the photo of the honey bee in snow - very cool!
