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!
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!!
Excellent photo, Robyn n both counts!!
Terrific photo, Rob!
Wow - what a great shot!
You did good, Rob. Beautiful flowers and a bee to boot.
Beautiful flower, my favorite color. Nice bee, too! Thanks, RR.
You captured a bee in flight, Robyn? You are amazing!
Wow, these are gorgeous and look at that bee! Nice shot robyn.
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!!!
Beautiful flower, Rob, the colour is so vibrant, and what a huge bee, Thank you.
