Blue Banded Bees in the Garden

by Erica Siegel

Here is another lively blue banded bee captured in action by Erica Siegel of Queensland.

This video shows a blue banded bee, Amegilla, extending her long tongue to sip nectar from some flowers. Anyone who has tried to photograph these fast moving bees darting about in a garden will appreciate how difficult it is to capture footage like this!

Notice the thick reddish fur on this bee's thorax and the bright, strongly marked bands on her abdomen. This shows that she is quite a young, recently emerged bee. In older bees the fur becomes worn and patchy as they bustle in and out of their nest burrows.
