This tiny, tiny bee was working very hard collecting pollen ... Robert @robv can you identify please?
It was only about 5mm in size and is collecting pollen from the tip of a stamen here.
This was handheld with a monopod for some support but due to the size & speed of the insect, it took about 50 frames to get some usable images!
The black OOF shape to the right of the insect is another one the same but even smaller!
And finally WOW I am blown away to the response to yesterday's dragonfly .... thank you!
PS ID'ed by Robert - Hylaeus is a large genus (~900 species) of mostly very small bees (5-6 mm long is common) in the family Colletidae. They are worldwide in distribution and especially diverse in temperate to subtropical Australia.
