A Photo A Day - No. 361

Blue-Banded Bee
Amegilla cingulata
An Australian Native Bee
often used to 'buzz' pollinate plants in green houses.
Although they do sting they are not aggressive
so will only sting if provoked.
Seen here on a lavender bush in the garden,
blue flowers being their favourites!
