Bonus for Being Good

I hate housework, it seems so futile, you clean up, mess arrives and you’re back where you started from. Today however I decided to put sealer on the slate floors and then I had a perfect excuse for staying outside because it needed to dry. I was rewarded with some lovely surprises.

A gorgeous Hoya flower, one of several.

A Katydid played hide and seek ….. well, like a little child it seemed to think if I couldn’t see its eyes I couldn’t see it at all.

I was very excited to see what I was sure was a Blue Banded Bee but getting a photo was very, very difficult. They buzz about like a busy Bee in overdrive. When I saw the photo I realized there was no blue colour and I have since discovered there are also Teddy Bear Bees which are very similar to Blue Banded Bees. Maybe the one I’ve photographed is actually a Teddy Bear Bee but I’m not convinced. I went back to try and get another photo and noticed there were at least 2 of these different bees and they didn’t like each other, certainly at least one of them does seem to have the blue bands.

 

Does this ring any bells with you?
