Experimenting with Sugar Water

I decided to do an experiment this afternoon.  The bees have been bringing in lots of pollen on the days they're flying.  So I mixed up some 1:1 sugar water and put it out this evening to see if they'd be interested.  I added a little Honey B Healthy so it would smell good and maybe attract them better.  I saw one sniffing around it already.  Maybe tomorrow they'll all be on it.  Or, maybe they won't be interested in it.  We'll see.

It was sunny and 63F today and the wind was 6 to 8 mph out of the NE.
