Strange bedfellows

Dear All – Hello – thanks for the kind comments and glad that the bee photos were of interest.

Here is another picture showing two of the bees that were feeding on the flowers sleeping. Bees often sleep in small aggregations – especially the males.

However, in this instance I found two different species sharing the same grass stem as a place to lay their heads for the night! They sleep holding on to the grass with their mandibles (their teeth!).

I wonder what they dream about!

More from the wonderful world of bugs soon!
