It was a really cold and wet spring day when I found this Bee fly, so I think due to the cold it was very sluggish and allowed me to carry it over to a nearby flower. This gave a more colorful compo : )

We had the first hours without frost and I could see hundreds of bees looking for food at our mahonia.

We have a reasonably large clump of lavender in our small garden which is attended by what seems to be just two types of bee which we assume are cuckoo bees.


This one has a much lighter hairy thorax than the other that has a dark almost orange 'coat'


At least that is what our insect book suggests but if we are wrong then please tell us.

one from way back in May. This wee fella needed a helping hand as I found found it slowly crossing a road. Not the best place for a bee to be.

megachilidae. In my garden.


African Carder Bee 5 - 8 mm long.


This name is derived from the fact they collect downy fibres from various plants to make about that!

I have huge respect for bees. I honestly think our society would work a lot better if we were more like them. For starters, each of us would have the ability to kill... but only once, and then only at the cost of our own life. Would put many things in a different perspective, don't you think?


Men would have a great time. Basically sit around and eat until you're called to the bedroom. Then do your duty and die. The ultimate in linear living.


We gals... well, we'd be out buzzing around with our snouts in flowers. Which sounds a hell of a lot better than sitting at a desk.


I don't know if I could handle the communal living, though. I need my space. I'm highly anti-social.


But hey... I can stil enjoy the daydream.

Many thanks to all who take the time to view, comment or fav my images.

This is one of the leaf cutter bees - female Megachile willuhbiella. It was taking a rest on a bench in my garden.

There were hordes of bees sucking up the pollen from the geraniums in my garden in the afternoon sunshine.

This handheld shot was taken with a 36mm Kenko extension tube attached to my 100mm macro lens. The shot was then cropped, clarified and given a dose of noise removal in Lightroom.


it was taken at ISO4000, f9 and 1.1600 sec. That might seem like very high ISO, but the depth of field and speed is necessary for this type of shot.

love the hair on this bee

Zur Zeit sind die Bienen sehr fleißig. Es ist interessant ihnen bei der Arbeit zuzuschauen, aber schwierig sie zu fortografieren. Leider haben sie die Eigenart nicht still sitzen zu bleiben ;-).

At present the bees are very diligent. It is interesting to watch them at work, but difficult to make a photo. Unfortunately they do not sit still ;-).
