You Busy Little Bee

Bee on Lavender 1

What’s that sound I hear?

Buzzing round the lavender

Busy little bee!


Bee on Lavender 2

This is the Cape honey bee, Apis mellifera capensis, indigenous to South Africa.

Bees are one insect that I am happy to have in my garden; along with Ladybirds of course.

Pollinate away my tiny friend.


post script: I was pretty chuffed with these close ups, (Let’s ignore the several blurred ones that I deleted!) taken with my trusty Canon point and click camera.

    Pollination is alive and well in your garden!! Yaayyyy! Fantastic close-ups. His wings look like sheer gold!!

    I’ve tried lavender plants, but with no success. Maybe I’ll try again next year. I just love them.

      Thank you very much 😀
      This is my third lavender bush in a few decades! I think they have a finite life . . . Well in my garden they do! 😀
