Everyday Moments

The word prompt from Amy at the Lens-Artist Photo Challenge: Everyday Moments

My everyday moments often involve just things that happen around my place. This is something that happens everyday here. The last photos are the main point of the everyday moment. The first ones are to set the scene.

The succulent spear has started to grow taller with an orange tinge.

Once the flower develops, the buds open up and the flowers turn orange.

This is the everyday moment at my place. The tiny Stingless Native Bees (Tetragonula carbonaria) come to collect the orange pollen in their pollen pouches. These bees are 4mm in size.

You can just see the pollen on their legs. Such a out of focus photo sorry and today is quite windy so they aren’t about at the moment to get a better photo for you.

Another Stingless Native Bee has gotten the message and flies in to join the others from the hive.
