Australian Native Bees are everywhere at the moment, far outnumbering the honey bees in my garden. If you can catch them at rest, this is your only chance to get a shot of these very fast little bees. Often in the low light you will find them roosting in a position that seems unique to the native bees. They will bite onto the end of a flower or twig with their jaws while tucking their legs under their body. I have no idea of the species of these two bees as there are numerous species in the area. Please feel free to provide an ID if you can.
