The challenge is shallow depth of field – 52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 32
The Hippeastrum is a fabulous flower to photo. Its large bell shaped flowers and striking colours give many an opportunity for some great photos. Throw in some Stingless Native Bees and you look into a busy tiny world.
The flowers are male and female. This is a female flower with the stigma ready for some pollen.
This is a male with the anthers full of pollen
All we need are some bees. Look how full the bees pollen baskets are.
Once a flower is found the tiny bees come to collect the pollen.
I wonder if they know there’s a spider in there.
