A Wasp and an Ant feed on the nectar of an exotic yellow Parrot's Beak flower




A Wasp and an Ant feed on the nectar of an exotic yellow Parrot's Beak flower





I've had this picture for a while but no one I knew could identify this yellow flowering shrub. And I know just about everyone around here! So finally today I took a chance on Google... and voila! I found it a few minutes ago.

Parrot's Beak or Gmelina asiatica (philippensis) is an extraordinary round shrub with pendant branches, large long leaves and exotic flowers made up of a tube-like structure of overlapping bracts from which yellow flowers emerge. The whole flower resembles a parrot's beak. And so that's what it's called... Parrot Beak.

I feel relieved! And now I need to discover the name of this bee. Do you know?

Update:
Many people refer to bees and wasps interchangeably. They are both Hymenoptera but, as you work in your yard it is important to learn how to distinguish them. Bees are interested almost exclusively in collecting pollen and nectar from your plants, and they are adapted evolutionarily for doing this.

Wasps, on the other hand, are searching for small prey like caterpillars. Occasionally, small slender wasps can be observed taking nectar from selected flowers like this one. They have no interest in pollen. They don’t have adapted body parts for transporting it the way bees do. The tip off on a wasp is the long wings.

So I stand corrected. This is a wasp!

Crab spider flower theatre




Crab spider flower theatre





I've always liked flower crab spiders
and I love the warm late afternoon sunlight which creates a rather theatrical atmosphere.
Though I doubt that spider gives * about light or drama.

If you look very closely, preferably on the large format picture,
you can see how the spider is actually holding one of its threads
with its third leg/claw on the left side,
probably as a warning if prey would be around somewhere.
