Joy of joys! I have seen a leafcutter bee doing what a leafcutter bee does best.. well almost. I didn’t actually see her cutting the leaf but did see her flying in short bursts carrying this huge piece of leaf. I didn’t have time to stay and see where she was taking it but did manage a couple of photos.
She made quite a few stops and seemed to be struggling somewhat. I do hope she made it back to the nest OK.. I have been to Leu a few times recently and seen some wonderful bees.. more on that next week.
This week I have been tied to the computer for 6 whole solid days, trying to finally put my bee book together on Blurb. It is my first Blurb book and I WILL press the “buy” button tomorrow. It has been a steep learning curve. There has been a lot of dithering on my part and I am not sure that Booksmart is quite as smart as it could be. I will post a few sample spreads next week.
And, yes, I have, of course, had to go and check up on “Life on the Ledge”. The sparrows have completely rebuilt and are now taking “fluffy” stuff in. I think things are getting serious and am keeping my fingers crossed for them! .. more sketches to come.
