p.1 #1 · Our Beautiful Blue Banded Bee


I planted the garden with some native shrubs they like to forage on and they in turn roost nearby at night. Still too warm to get too close without disturbing them but it's cooling down now.































One that was disturbed and settled on the nearby Banana tree stump.












And with a little BG, a leaf held and a piece of material placed behind, or is that driving rain ...

Thanks Brian, Andrei and Denis, appreciated ...

There are many beautiful bees here. It's a matter of getting out at the right time, season and place - as always ...

No secrets Andy. You are lucky to have them nesting nearby. It means they are also roosting nearby, probably on thin stalks (dry grass, dead plants or fern, as you see in a few of the photos, otherwise is rare) that have some shelter from the elements (but not necessarily) and where there is a food source - flowering native plants are best but blue is an attractant for them - nearby. One thing bees need to get going in the morning is heat from the sun so they will roost where they can catch the first rays.

What is the situation for the digging? On a sheltered slope? Clay, sandy - what kind of soil and situation?

I have a sloping and a very sandy garden which does face the rising sun. They were mainly digging at the beginning of the summer season now only seem them flying about, impossible to take picture. How far
do they roost up the plant.

I can usually find them in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens all over the lavender in great numbers at certain times of the year. But usually the gardens are closing before I can hope to see one at rest. And on the move they're very difficult to capture, they work a lot quicker than the honey bees!

Good work Mark.
