Distracted by Leafcutter Bees

With all the flowers in bloom, it is hard not to be distracted by bees.

Take this leafcutter bee.

How can you ignore a bee that can cut a leaf like this?

Within seconds the leaf is processed.

The last cut…

and off it goes.

In case you were wondering, the plant is a dwarf pomegranate.

I was actually looking for bees performing a different behavior, but I haven’t managed to get that on film yet.

Maybe later in the week.
