[NAFEX] Honey Bees?

I've seen a few honeybees on my plum and peach trees. Nothing major,
but I don't have a frame of reference to know if this is normal since
this is the first big bloom year I've had for them. Also, while we had
a drought it wasn't that severe here. I have seen bumblebees and all
kinds of other bees/flies though.

For those of you in the areas hit hard last year during the Easter
freeze, that were then hit with the severe drought, are you seeing any
honey bees this spring? In years past, my fruit trees are buzzing with
thousands of them, but this spring, I have not seen a single one. In
fact, I have not seen much in the way of any pollinating insects, except
carpenter bees, which don't pollinate well due to their habit of
cheating by cutting holes in the base of flowers. I guess the lack of
flowers last year caused the populations to crash.
