Busy day on the Sapphire Salvia

June 2, 2016

 

Monday, Memorial Day, was a very busy day on the Sapphire Salvia plants.

Bees were on there all day, sometimes both carpenter bees and honey bees.

And when a wasp would join them, the bees flew away until the wasp was gone.

 

 

A sunny, sometimes very breezy day.

 

 

These photos were taken within seconds of each other, of different female carpenter bees and honey bees.

Above, a female carpenter bee is landing on a salvia blossom.
