Perseverance, Persistence & Patience ...

Australia has over 1500 native bee species and for the last couple of days I've been trying really hard to photograph the Blue Banded Bees that are hanging around one of the flowering plants here at home. They are so fast and never sit longer than a nano second so I was really happy to have captured these 2 shots this morning!  This species are solitary bees and do not live in hives.

Wow, what amazing shots! It's incredible that you were able to capture such a sharp closeup with incredible details and color.

I know it must be very hot, but if you could please send me some of your Australian heat, we would be most appreciative as we are freezing our buns off! Yesterday, 49 of the 50 states registered temps below freezing!

Stay cool, Chelle and I can't wait to see your next set of photos!
