Some more blue banded bee (A. cingulata) videos from the back (first two from my better half, last from me). This one seems convinced our patio bricks are the perfect spot for a burrow.

First native bee Iโ€™ve spotted at Salesforce Park this year. Iโ€™m always there before 9am and it was still well under 60 degrees so this was a determined B. melanopygus worker getting her energy drink from a Manzanita bush. [San Francisco, CA 3-2-2020]

I saw a hash tag called so why not to take the subject? However I wanted to take the opportunity to show up native bees. Which has different colors and has a lot of design potential for ocs and adoptables

Whilst I admittedly planted the Grevillea sericea for the birds, canโ€™t say Iโ€™m not enjoying the other visitors they attract. Anyone ID? Blue enough for a blue-banded ๐Ÿ ?

And speaking of phoretic mites, here is a large vosnesenskii bumblebee queen, with not quite as many. I did appreciate her choosing that entertaining napping pose. Shot last year in Alameda. (10-27-2018)

Not entirely sure about this beehaviour, but Iโ€™ve read that bees blow bubbles to concentrate the nectar & pollen theyโ€™ve collected through water evaporation. This is a tiny Australia native, its head no more than 1.5 mm across. 3 frame focus stack.

Great to see our native garden attracting a distinctive I have not seen before in Newport. I looked it up - Amegilla cingulata, the blue-banded bee, lives a solitary life, no honey hives but uses โ€œBuzz pollinationโ€ needed to pollinate 8% of the worlds flowering plants
