Solitude

Solitude is something I crave at times. I don’t enjoy crowds and noise. I don’t enjoy having to make small talk. Some days I just don’t want to be around people at all! So when I thought about solitude the first things I thought of were quiet walks in the countryside, or sitting quietly crocheting or reading. But how to sum that up in a photo?

Then my mind jumped to Solitary Bees … who unlike Bumblebees and Honeybees, live alone, in solitude, rather that in a big hive. My kind of bees, I guess 🙂

Here’s some photos I’ve taken of Solitary Bees.

  1. I’m like you, I enjoy solitude. I’ve also made a couple of bug hotels but so far don’t see any signs of “guests”. Apart from Blue Banded Bees I wouldn’t be able to distinguish the solitary bees from the European honey bees we have here in Australia.
