Nature's Place

Bee Purple

*Click on the pictures for a proper look … and click again

Colder and colder, fewer and fewer, the Blue Banded Bees are making a heroic effort at surviving. They also have the sense to shelter from the cold clear sky at night, hanging from a thread.

Literally, life on a thread for these guys. Always somewhere near the nest where the females would usually be. A few of them about the garden during the day.

Still some flowers blooming on our warm winter days, enough to keep a few bees fuelled up for their frantic paced flight.

Fly little fireball, to the end of … burn up the form with the passage of the sun.

    A fitting elegy, Mark — to be noticed, and appreciated, on the way home.

      Thanks Cate.

      They’ll always get home, never lost to nature.
