Tiny Tuesday - Mining Bee & French Lavender
What another glorious day definitely too nice to be inside so I went down the track just before lunch. It was so peaceful with not a soul about. I did glimpse a squirrel leaping around in a tree and disturbed a baby green lizard, twice. I took over 200 photos today, the first time I've done that in ages, mostly of insects and you can a tiny amount on Flickr if you fancy.
I'm pretty sure this is a mining bee enjoying the last few flowers on our French Lavender. I love the way it's wiping it's head with it's feet, almost looks like it having a stretch. The flower head that the bee is on is about 2cm long and the one behind is 1cm so very small.
