I don't often see Bee's in the afternoon.
Guess it was the first chance this one had after 30 hours of rain..
It was enjoying the Grevillea banksii.

The little bee must be hungry... poor thing.

We get bees here most of the day except in the middle of hot days when all smart insects stay in the shade Very Happy

Thanks Richard... I have no idea I have often gone out in the garden of a afternoon with my monopod and little stool and waited and waited around the Lavender which is usually covered in them of a morning, bok choy is another one and roses but never any there.. Lots of Insects I only see very early in the morning here.

And believe me I am out at all hours looking for things to photograph..

I do see those very tiny ant size native bees of a afternoon but not the honey making bee.

.......

As you say Gail they are probably seeking the shade and there are not many flowers blooming in the shade here..

Another set of excellent photos.

Perhaps the honey bees are being polite and sharing the flowers with the native bees... Laughing

A lot depends on what time the flowers release their pollen too... some only release it in the morning, some later.

I did not know that Gail I do realise the pumpkin flowers were a morning preformer..
Though I had no idea about other plants... for that..

My father had bee hives for years until he moved back to town and he was always telling us which plants released pollen when.

Isn't it wonderful what knowledge the Parents and Grandparents can hand down Gail, some you cannot even find in books or Google now for that matter
