My little beeyard is half full of fireweed. It’s very pretty.

Honey bees are attracted to fireweed.


Dragonflies are also attracted to fireweed.

  1. A day later I saw a dragonfly swoop down and grab a honey bee in midair just as the bee was coming in for a landing. It’s feeding time for dragonflies.
