One of my Large-Headed Resin bees waiting for me to get out of her flight path. She’s carrying a little ball of resin in her mandibles and landed on my arm before moving to this leaf to politely let me know I was in her way 🐝

And here is the tiny adorable gal who has to protect her brood from red-thighed epeolus: "Davies' Colletes" or in german: "Gemeine Seidenbiene"! Look at how much pollen she is carrying on her legs and on her belly! She is completely COVERED in it! πŸ’•πŸ

Look at this GOOD GIRL going to PARASITE SOME BEE NESTS The first ever footage I was able to catch of a red-tighed epeolus female today :'D Those black/white stripes with her red eyes are so unsettling I love it

We don’t hear enough about solitary bees. They are so important to global pollination. In some cases they are better pollinators than their more famous cousins the honey bee.

Over in my little garden, just when we thought Autumn was arriving, a second burst of Summer weather has brought in quite a few new females looking to nest 🐝
