What tree is this? I dont know! But these clusters of flowers were about three times bigger than my head! It stands on the fence line of someones property at the side of a narrow road with nowhere to pull over.
So I shot from the car expecting to be given the 'bums rush' any moment. They arent too bad considering I could take no extra care with my composition without tresspassing. A lonely dog looked longingly at me from the other side of the fence, hopeful.
But I was doubly rewarded when I spied some of our tiny stingless native bees working the enormous blossoms! Im no native bee expert, so Ive got no clue which Australian Native Bee they are - but Iam now thier biggest fan. Arent they darling?
Adding to wish list: Macro lens, and personal hovercraft.
