Bees and Bee-Eaters
Spring at Wallaby Gully means lots of native flowers. Some plants, like this pea bush, attract many types of native bee including the Peacock Carpenter Bee (top). Larger than a European honey bee, it's a bright metallic green/blue.
The name suggests bee-eaters eat bees but I've never seen that.
These brightly coloured Rainbow Bee-eaters arrive at the dam every afternoon around 5 to drink on the wing and eat ants from the ground.
