Have you ever noticed ants frantically scurrying around the buds of your peonies? Some gardeners believe the ants are actually what cause buds to open, but that’s only a myth. Ants are simply drawn to the peonies’ sweet nectar. That said, leave the ants alone! They won’t hurt your flowers and are likely to feed on pests that will.

It’s World Bee Day! I read last week how an Aussie almond farmer has just spent $8 million to bring in bees for pollinating his trees. It did make one wonder: where are the usual bees that would do that that job? While I’m not sure if that was actually the issue in this case, we know that worldwide there have been many issues with the health of natural bee populations. WBD however tends to focus on the positive things people can do to help bees, such as planting lots of flowering plants in your garden; avoiding the use of pesticides; promoting the protection of the larger habitat; and even putting a bee-bath in the garden. This is a shallow bird-bath with small pebbles, that allows a bee to take a break and slake its thirst between bouts of pollination. The bee in this pic was doing its work in a beautiful garden at Blackheath, in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney. ———————————————Single handheld outdoor shot, with an Olympus em5 mkii, 60mm M.Zuiko lens.

A handsome Oedemera nobilis, munching on some pollen. If you swipe across you can see the parasitic beetle larva he's carrying around. I don't think they bother him too much, usually they latch onto solitary bees and eat the food meant for the bee's young.

Yes, that’s a tick, and yes, it’s on my hand 👋 Little dude was just trying to live their best life, so I can’t really try and make it out like they’re evil. Was tricky to get this shot because it wouldn’t stop moving! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

Пасмурно, прохладно, а иногда даже дождливо в местах нашего обитания. Бабочки подлетают к морю и падают в прибой,  я их вылавливаю и высаживаю на выброшенные морем деревья и ветки, но кажется мне, что это бесполезное занятие)) А время течёт здесь очень плавно и мне это нравится. Хорошей недели, друзья! 😘

Today is World Bee Day!

World Bee Day acknowledges the role bees and other pollinators play in ensuring a thriving ecosystem. Australia is home to over 1,600 species of native bees and around one third of what you eat is pollinated by bees.

The Blue Banded Bee (pictured) is an Australian native. They are solitary bees and, after mating, the female bee will burrow into shallow soil to build her nest. Blue banded bees perform a special type of pollination called “buzz pollination”, which is great for pollinating our native flowers, and also tomato plants.

Here are some ways you can help support our native bees: • Leave some undisturbed ground for burrowing bees – hollows and leaf litter make great homes for burrowing bees.
• Make a bee bath – the bath will need a ledge so that the bees can land when they take a drink.
• Plant bee attracting plants – bees love the colour blue and are drawn to big patches of flowers, so the more you plant the happier the bees! - Photo by Karen Retra –
