Hello Spring

September 1, 2019, and finally our long (cold) winter is over.

Ok, it wasn’t that long and it wasn’t that cold, and it will be another couple of weeks before the weather warms and I can pack away the winter woollies for another year.  (Even though we are expecting rather warm before the end of the week, it will cool off again briefly before the last of our chilly mornings are finished.)

But the signs of spring are appearing in the garden everywhere.  In particular, my Grevilleas are buzzing today.

I love catching bees 🙂

I’ll just make that a bit bigger.

Isn’t he cute?

And for my daughter Melissa – I did catch a native.

The Big and Small of the Buzzing Community

That little guy on the left is an Australian native bee, possible even a native stingless bee, and only a fraction of the size of the honeybee.

Australia has over 1,700 species of native bees, and although only 11 of those are stingless, stingless native bees are found in our area.

This is also my next entry for the Flower of the Day (FOTD) photo challenge hosted by Cee’s Photography.
