The bee gathers pollen , which is full of nutrients.
Then it enters another amaryllis flower and pollinates it.
Whether it is a native of Australia or India, I am happy to see the industrious Blue banded bee in my garden.
This is my contribution to Nick's Floral Friday.
What an exquisite flower! I love the color! It is always a delight to visit your garden with its lovely, lovely flowers! Thank you for sharing the beauty! Have a wonderful weekend!ReplyDelete
