a bit more bee behavior
living up to the leaf cutter name...they seem to be cutting leaves between the widely spaced veins in these leaves..or coming in from the edges...
and when the evening deepens and the temperatures begin to drop off they exhibit some fairly social behavior for solitary bees...the girls are bedding down after a busy day and they seem to want company..i also notice the dearth of heavy veins in the grass leaves ( in the teosinte patch ) they are choosing to congregate on...a further clue on where to look for the bees when they are not on the blooms.
an ex- industrial worker ( the continued automation of jobs, condensing of ownership, plant closings, trade wars, and degradation of living standards here has rendered me a former industrial worker...now just part-time lumpen proletariat) and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
