Bee Amazed

Did you know:

The smallest bee in the world comes from Queensland, Cape York Peninsula to be exact, measuring in at no more than 2 mm long, around the size of the tip of your pen!

Its name is the Quasihesma.

Measuring up at 5 mm long, is the Queensland native stingless bee Trigona Carbonaria, they are busy pollinating around you everyday, but so small and hard to see unless you watch for them carefully.

Here is one of my own little Trigona’s, legs ladened with pollen,  coming in to land on a waiting Angelonia.
