humming bird feeder

bee, beekeeping, foraging, humming bird feeder,
I added a gasket to this leaky humming bird feeder, but before I could add the yellow cage (aka bee guard) a honey bee returned.  The sugar to water ratio (1 to 4) is a dilute source, but attractive to bees during our extremely hot and dry summer.  Not sure how long the bee memory lasts of this forage location, but long enough for a few photos.
