Bees sucking on gum blossom



These  images were taken with the Nokia Lumia 520, several days ago, while Vika and I were on our morning walk. This blossom-laden gum tree  hangs low over the service road.





Yes – if you’re asking – I did get that fibreglass three-tiered pond out of storage. I’ve set it up, and now that I’ve decided on the final positioning, I just have to set the top ponds into sand or dirt to stabilise them. And I need to prevent cats sneaking up on the birds.

A pretty tabby cat wandered in this afternoon. It made itself at home by the bottom pond. I gave it a fright and it bounded out like its tail was on fire!

Hope you enjoyed seeing the bees.  Catch youse later.   🙂

PS: WordPress tells me this is my 500th post … not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.  I’ve slowed down a lot since I’ve paid more attention to getting this novel of mine sorted.  😮



I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

  1. Looks as though he doesn’t want to let go, must taste good. Get going with the water feature, the birds will be needing it. Don’t know what to do about the cat except catch it and tie a bell around it’s neck.

    1. I’ve got water in all three ponds from testing the waterfalling flow, but the top pond will probably fall off the stump if a magpie landed on it. I’ll get out early before the heat in the morning. Photos coming up. 🙂


  2. As if that fabulous flower blossom isn’t enough, you managed to get a big bee butt in the photo 🙂 Very nice!! … and congratulations on #500! That’s a rather significant milestone … in my eyes, anyway 🙂
