Bees are a necessary part of life……they add colour and sound to the garden as the buzz around the flowers. There are so many different bees in all sizes, shapes and colours. The native bees are so small compared to the other larger types.
I was informed by Carmen
@Honey_Delight that a healthy bee was fat and furry. This blue bummed bee scrunched, sometimes you have to scrunch, in the Blue Ginger must be rather healthy don’t you think?
Whew……it is such a relief to be able to stretch out and get zooming off to the next flower
The little native bees often share the pollen from the flowers. They are nearly always in a group when the smell the sweet flowers are full for them to collect.
After a storm, the native bees even gathered the pollen from the fallen flowers of the Bangalow Palm. I love how the pollen sacs glisten.
No matter what you do, there is always someone watching…….
And when they get going, boy can they buzz along, even when they have a load of pollen aboard.
Hope you have enjoyed a buzz around the gardens with me and the bees……
