I watched bees on my flowers yesterday literally push each other off as if they were in competition for the same flowers. There is no shortage of flowers in this yard. It was as if two different colonies were fighting for territorial rites and staking out their own property lines. Anyone ever see anything like this.

Now that you say it I have seen some of my bees wearing little helmets and throwing pollen grenades at each other.
