Blue Banded Bees settling down for the night

Posted by Darren on April 9, 2010

Here is another shot of a Blue Banded Bee roosting on a twig.  They are solitary bees and they roost like this as the light starts to fade. Makes for easier photos as I think they have trouble seeing in the dark and are less likely to spook with a big lens in their faces.
