Honeybee on Sunflower

Fall sunflowers bring so much brightness to the garden. As the sunflowers begin to open and mature in the middle, the bees flock to the colorful flowers to taste of the plentiful pollen.

Each morning and afternoon when checking the garden for new flowers opening, I saw plenty of honeybees buzzing among the flowers. They especially loved to visit the wide face of the sunflowers. One honeybee would spend up to five minutes visiting different sections of the sunflowers as it collected the soft yellow pollen.

I imagine the honeybees being happy little insects after visiting the happily colored sunflower. Do happy honeybees produce more delicious honey?
