An unknown visitor

Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Stranger

While in the garden taking a few photos for an upcoming post, I stopped to get a few photos of some Singleness Native Bees who were enjoying the pollen of a Hippeastrum flower filling their pollen sacs. See the yellow pollen in the well filled pollen sacs on their legs.

Unknown to me a stranger appeared. He zoomed in and was gone in an instant. The Bee in the lower left side with the yellow spot on its thorax is a Masked Bee, the first time I have ever seen one at my place. Masked bees ingest the pollen and regurgitate it back at the hive rather than collect it in pollen sacs like most bees
