The rosemary hedge is blooming


The rosemary hedge is blooming!

Obviously it is drought tolerant because we have rarely watered it this year.

So it's great to see it so healthy and providing necessary nutrition for our bee visitors.

Today I saw at least three kinds of bees in the rosemary.

In the above image is a Western honey bee Apis mellifera Linnaeus

Here is a wool carder bee Anthidium Fabricius

And what I'm most excited about is observing for the first time a mining bee

Andrena Fabricius ! Note the metallic sheen on its dark abdomen.
