Bee Photographs


#854

If it was me, I would be thinking, “look at how much food I have brought home for our babies, but now I have to lug it up several flights of crowded stairs, and pack it all away myself!”


#855

I’d be thinking, “there has got to be more in life than this, hell… I don’t even get to hanky panky… those drones are useless.” just saying.


#856

Found this in yard today, what is it?


#857

Looks like a drone honey bee, down on his luck. He has probably been attacked - hairless (that is why he looks black) and missing parts of his legs. Poor guy.


#858

Its large, just over 2cm.


#859

Oh yes, I missed that. Bit big for a honey bee, but the eyes are what made me think a drone. Maybe somebody else has a better idea. Still looks like he has been attacked by other insects. :cry:

Some type of bumble, thin & ragged from rough living?


#861

The extra long thorax as well as the long & curled under antennae steers me away from a bee drone.


#862

Ok, take two. This time I’m sure :grin:
Unfortunately I only had my phone but now I know where they’re hanging out I’ll start stalking with my camera.

Nice one. They’re out here too but as they don’t land on the flowers they are difficult to capture.
Great for the tomatos. :+1:

So Brad, a couple of years ago did you think you’d be running around the garden taking photos of insects???


#867

:grin: even one year ago I probably wouldn’t even have noticed. I just downloaded an app that tells me what sort of plants I’ve got :roll_eyes:.
Beekeeping certainly changes your perspective of things.


#868

It’s remarkable. Since setting up the hive, your awareness of insects in general skyrockets. Consistently find these native guys and many others in the courtyard.




#869

Does anyone know what these are?! Sorry, only using phone camera and zooming in quite a bit.


#870

Resin bee?


#871

How did you manage to capture that photo?!?!?! It’s fantastic.


#872

Thank you. The bee cooperated completely is how😁
It spent a couple of minutes checking out that hole, going in and out and hovering at the entrance. Unfortunately I only had the iPhone but it’s taken a pretty good picture.


#873

That is a photo contest winning shot Brad, really good.
Cheers
