Nature's Place

Jacaranda

The dots and spots around the tree, against the cloudy sky, are flying insects, many bees. No doubt some of them are not native too.

Blowing in the wind but bright enough to get fast shutter speed to stop the action, for a clear sharp image.

Not an Australian native – https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-12-02/more-to-love-about-jacarandas-than-just-purple-flowers/12939930 – but it’s here to stay.

I have seen a few flowering around the place after recent rains but the one photographed is from the bush.

This one was attended by a variety of flying insects, bees, wasps, flies, etc.

But it was too hot in the afternoon sun to stand around for long.

    Beautiful colour, it must be a joy to have one in your garden.

      This was in the local bush, almost my garden. And yes, a real standout colour.
