Here's a few shots of some Blue Banded Bees, an Australian native that are probably my favorite insect to shoot. They are solitary bees that roost at night by hanging onto small twigs by their jaws. They bite down and lift up their bodies to clean themselves. They can be very hard to shoot as they are spooked very easily and fly more like a hoverfly than a honey bee. I love their large multi lensed eyes and colourful bodies. They also have a particular affinity for blueish coloured flowers which is a great fact when hunting for them.
