Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth

The Earth is for Miners

It’s not just man that digs and delves – these are tiny miner bees, notice their legs covered in pollen

They dig down and create little cone-shaped casts

Then one of them appears to guard the entrance

We have six or eight of their little mining casts in the centre of our drive at the moment

    • Thanks Tom, they’re interesting little creatures. We have to be careful not to step on their ‘mines’ when we walk down the drive!
