There were 3 or 4 Bees zooming about really fast, so it was difficult to catch them clearly. Taken this morning.

Beautiful photo robryan and nice "capture" of the bee. They're hard to focus on because they move in and out of the focal plane quickly. I love the flowers, too.

Yes, it is unusual Ami - Teddy Bear tan-coloured with a brown band around the body! After Nev ID'd it for me I looked them up, and it was an exact match!! I never realised there was such a name - although I've seen them occasionally in the garden - so I've learned something too!! My Jigidi education continues :)))) Thanks!!

That doesn't look like any bee I've seen bee-fore Robyn, it's an unusual color isn't it!

robryan

Thanks Sandy, Laura, tex, snooker, Patti, Nicky, Suzy & Dave! The bees were certainly busy, big bees & I took a few bum shots - but only a couple that were OK! Thanks everyone for commenting!!

You captured a bee in flight, Robyn? You are amazing!

Thanks Barb - we see them quite often here and they never worry us either. They don't seem to be as aggressive as honey bees.

I think you're right Nev - it does look like Teddy Bear Bee!! LOL! All is forgiven :)))) Thanks!!!!

They are pretty Beekay - almost a purple colour, with a yellow centre!! They're not a true ginger, but that's their common name! Thanks!

Wonderful color to this very pretty flower. Thanks!!

That bee looks like the large variety Teddy Bear Bee. We have them here too.
Sorry, I was supposed to say "The flower is very pretty". :-)))

So pretty, Rob :) Never saw a bumblebee in Arizona, but when I lived in Illinois (up north) I made peace with them. I was working in my garden and they were working my flowers, right next to each other. I was never stung. I think they recognized me and thought I'm harmless....LOL

Thanks Shirley - this lot have been in flower since early January, and there are still unopened buds on top!!!
