Taken in Bangalore on February 17, 2018.
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.
