Huge Roost of Blue Banded Bees

by Erica Siegel

Here is another delightful blue banded bee video kindly contributed by Erica Siegel of Queensland.

This video shows a large group of blue banded bees, Amegilla, coming in to roost in a bushland area in Queensland. It starts with just a single bee that grasps the twig with his jaws. Then there are four bees, then ten!

As more bees come in to join the group, the others frantically wave their legs about. Finally as dusk falls, 22 bees are competing for precious space on the favoured twigs.
