Blue banded bee

Amegilla cingulata


This furry bee with striped abdomen and green eyes was clinging to a dead piece of grass. I do not normally shoot bees but this one is rather cute.


Blue banded bee. Thanks Mark.

Thanks Mark.That looks right.
It was holding the stem in its mandibles for most of the day.
