Cactus Bees


Amazing photos of cactus bees and disgusting beetles on cactus from Margarethe Brummermann’s Arizona Beetles Bugs Birds and More Blog – I’ve borrowed one photo, but recommend you check out the rest of them.

Cactus Bees, genus Diadasia hectically buzz from flower to flower and dive deeply between the stamina. Males refuel with nectar, females collect pollen for the brood in addition. Often, before they fly off again, they seem to hesitate and wait motionless. That’s the moment when males will suddenly pounce on the females.

Amazing photos AND tales of bee sex too! Nice.
