Passion Plant

The Passion plant is blooming. Beautiful!

I watched a small, shy, metallic green bee work the blossoms. After trying to get a good image of him, he finally let me know that my presence was annoying. Maybe he was just hungry after the rain. Or maybe he was defending some territory from his own image reflected in the camera lens.

This bee is too small to pollinate these blossoms. Guess I’ll have to hand pollinate them myself.
