Leaf Cutting Bees in the garden

July 21, 2017

 

The Leaf Cutting Bees are enjoying the pollen and nectar of many plants in our native garden area. Most of the plants in this garden are native to California, but I just can't resist growing cosmos every year.

 

 

The photo above is of a Leaf Cutting Bee in an 'Orange' "Klondike Cosmos". This cosmos plant is native to Mexico. I love that bright orange.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is another Leaf Cutting Bee in a Coreopsis Grandiflora Sunfire blossom.

Another name for this plant is Tickseed or Butter Daisy.

The plant is another native to Mexico.
