Corner View {October}

Corner View this week is 'October' ...

I know last week's photo was of a bee but October in Australia means SPRING is here ! And with spring comes flowers and with flowers comes bees !  Stay with me though because these are not your normal bees !  These are Australian Native Bees !  They are much smaller than normal bees.  I think they are adorable !  And I just learned that they don't sting ! 

They love my sunflowers !

Check out yellow pollen on the legs of the little guy below !  Super cool !!
Different to the pink pollen in last weeks photo !

Look how many of them are on this one small sunflower (above) !

Is it only me, or is anyone else fascinated by bees ?

sure, "October" doen't mean the same thing at all, for us. Your pictures are beautiful! warm greetings from the antipodes!

wonderful - I love autumn, but I love more spring and summer.

Those are amazing shots Bonnie! I can't say I'm fascinated by bee, but I like your better now that I know they don't sting!

I like your little bees so much better! I got stung by a bee a couple of weeks ago and it wasn't pretty :(

THese are indeed fascinating, especially the guy with the yellow legs :) I don't think I've ever seen any so small.
Happy day.

Love your bee pics! My father used to keep bees and I used to assist him when he had "bee chores" to do. They are fascinating creatures!

gorgeous! both the flowers and the bees.

since i got stung by one this summer, not so in love with them at the moment, but it's hard not to respect them isn't it?

Hi Bonnie . . . Thanks for changing your settings - I can comment now! Love your bees . . . and thanks so much for those fabulous recipes that freeze well. I am about to do a sort-out of all my recipes so I might put up a few of my old freezer favourites soon. I'll give you the link when I do :-) And yes, I am in New Zealand. We live in Christchurch - which has its challenges right now - we're hoping for a fabulous Spring!

Elizabeth October 13, 2011 at 6:20 AM  

How tiny they are!
Happy spring.

Beautiful - and what wonderful shots!

wow, they really are small! we also have an autochtonous bee here but it looks more regular than yours.

Theresa October 13, 2011 at 4:44 PM  

I have never seen the tiny bees. I love bees, in theory, from a distance. I love what they give us.

Anonymous October 14, 2011 at 1:29 AM  

wow ... and nice to find out that they don't sting. beautiful images :)

"I'd like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees and snow-white turtle doves"

This song was my first contact with English! My little sister had a toy playing that song ;-)

I recognize the song Sophie mentions. I think it goes on with something about harmony.

And you've captured harmony in nature, excellent shots!

I am a bumblebee lover myself. We have a little group that nests in the wall of our house when winter comes, and so, over the years, I've selected bumblebee favorite plants for every season.

Never seen such small bees - I like their hind legs, it gives them a hint of sturyness.

like a plane coming in, they seem to be doing in your magical image #2. i am in awe. i love bees anyway. i have read how important they are to our life cycle...
