Blue-Banded Bee

A gorgeous Aussie!

What a beaut Aussie bee! Snapped in flight in a Brisbane garden by Saffer-Kiwi-Aussie ace photographer Steve Reed.

Solitary bees, they don’t hang around in groups. They nest in tunnels in clay or sandstone – but don’t trust me, do some research.

Which reminds me of one of Aitch – Trish – don’t say Patricia! – ‘s favourite songs:
