Amegilla (Asoropoda) sp or Teddy Bear Bee flying around the basil plant

This is a collection of bee photos taken by me. The majority of the photos were taken around my house. Even though it is just a small area, you’ll see the diversity and colours of these native and solitary bees.

I hope that these photos will make you go out to see them with your eyes. And of course if you can, grow plants so that these bees can collect pollen & nectar. In return, they will pollinate and pose for the photos for free 🙂
