I’m back from travels in Thailand, Zambia, and the UAE with lots of new photos. This is an African species of Carpenter Bee (Xylocopa caffra) hanging from a flower. Lusaka was in full bloom, despite the fact that it’s [southern hemisphere] winter there and the weather was cool.

I probably won’t make it to this year’s Republic Day Flower Show at LalBagh Botanical Gardens, but I’ll post a couple of pics from last year’s show.
