Still, with some minor cursing and one paper wasp sting later I managed to get a couple of pics to share with you.
If you'd like to check out some more info on these lovely little guys and you can't be bothered 'googling' them - head here: Kin Kin native bees or for a bit more of an overview, try Lifeunseen.com.

The fact of the matter is that the more we learn about the natural world - even the world of our own gardens, the more we realise we simply don't know all that much at all [at least that's been my experience]. Still, with over 2000 species of native bees in Au and only 1700 of them being described, let's not get too hung up on labels eh?.
And with the global decline of honey bees and bees in general, it's always good to spot some in the garden - whatever species they happen to 'be' [no pun intended].
Take care :)
