Teeny Tiny Visitors

This is an oriental orchid. They smell very pretty by the way and the also happen to be pretty attractive to a teeny tiny critter around here.

This is a native bee. Can you spot it. Isn't it cute. Okay maybe cute isn't the right word but it is certainly teeny tiny. I am glad to finally see these little fellows around the garden and I hope they are here to stay. As an added bonus they can't sting me.

They are busy little fellows. I wonder how they manage to carry all that pollen.

  1. Oh wow, tiny. It amazes me too, to see a bees legs full of pollen. It is wonderful to observe nature sometimes isn't it?

  2. They are so small, smaller than a fly. I love watching them busy at work and knowing that they might finally help my garden with their presence. I love taking the time to watch nature, it is beautiful, it is amazing, it is interesting and it is relaxing.
