This week’s photo challenge from the Daily Post is Unusual.
I recently became aware of some wild bees in the garden. They were carrying pieces of leaf (one at a time) and dragging them into a hole in a piece of wood. I could not tell what sort of leaf they were collecting until I walked past a hedge and noticed a partly chewed leaf.
The bees are leaf-cutter bees. I have read that they are helpful in gardens, pollinating plants. Their leaf damaging habits do not kill the plants.
