I planted the garden with some native shrubs they like to forage on and they in turn roost nearby at night. Still too warm to get too close without disturbing them but it's cooling down now.










One that was disturbed and settled on the nearby Banana tree stump.




And with a little BG, a leaf held and a piece of material placed behind, or is that driving rain ...

Fabulous images. Great colours, sharpness and detail.

The bee does look as dead as a dodo in some and draped over a leaf? Is that the case?

Thankyou for sharing the photographs of the Blue banded bee. It is great to see our native bees as they have been largely displaced by the European honeybee.
Cheers Peter Smile
