Ivory banded digger bee



At last I was able to take a photo of a bee gathering pollen from the native Woolly Blue Curls Trichostema lanatum growing in our native patch.


The scent of the blossoms is like grape soda. I can understand the attraction.

Here is an Ivory Banded Digger Bee gathering pollen.

You can see the blue pollen on the bee's pollen basket on its leg.











It was another very breezy day, and these bees dart around quickly.

So these are lucky shots of the bee in action.
