A rare treat is the beautiful Metallic Carpenter bee. It glows when the sun, shines on his body, throwing beautiful shades of greens and blues. This is a larger native bee, with a loud buzz and very erratic flight. It settles for just a few seconds, moving from flower to flower. They are solitary bees and she builds a nest to lay her eggs, in untreated wood. The female has a stinger, but will only sting if handled. #natures_hub #ig_mood #macro_captures #rsa_macro #tgif_macro #ig_closeups #instagardenlovers #ig_naturegallery #macro_perfection #nature_sultans #natureaddict #smallworld_uc #macro_highlight #macro_champ #insectagram #insectsofinstagram #AmazingPhotoHunter #Bugs_are_us #arthropod_perfection #arthropodsanonymous #bns_buginsects

The honey bees are buzzing around our Eriostemon blooms, which are a lovely native or wax flower. They are early spring flowering shrubs, that attract lots of bees and the early butterflies. #natures_hub #ig_mood #macro_captures #rsa_macro #tgif_macro #ig_closeups #instagardenlovers #ig_naturegallery #macro_perfection #nature_sultans #natureaddict #smallworld_uc #macro_highlight #macro_champ #insectagram #insectsofinstagram #AmazingPhotoHunter #Bugs_are_us #arthropod_perfection #arthropodsanonymous #bns_buginsects

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” - Anne Frank⁠ ⁠ Yesterday, I took my son to shop for school supplies. But not for him. I explained that we were on a mission to contribute some school supply donations to local students who don’t have the means to start the year off with basic necessities like paper, pencils, backpacks, etc.⁠ ⁠ Being not quite 5, my little guy didn't quite appreciate the impact of this deed and kept running around the store picking up the items he wanted for himself. We did pick up some pencils and a composition book he really wanted but I kept the focus on the fact that we were purchasing items to donate. ⁠ ⁠ I make it my daily goal to not spoil my children with “stuff”, to fight consumerist tendencies, and to be more thoughtful of how they use, treat and discard their things. I’m not the mother who buys a million “projects” for entertainment purposes and offers up a new item every time the kids are bored or tired of their existing arsenal of toys/supplies. I believe paper, a glue stick, scissors and crayons go a really long way and offer endless open play opportunities. ⁠ ⁠ Teaching my kids not to be wasteful and thoughtless is a big priority for me. Teaching them to be kind and considerate is an absolute MUST.⁠ ⁠ What are your favorite "toy-free" activities/projects to do with your kids?⁠ .⁠ .⁠ . ⁠ #blaskeyesusan #flowers #nature #flowerstagram #bloom #petals #naturelovers #macrophotography #flower #photooftheday #instagood #closeup #naturephotography #canon #macro_perfection #macro_captures #quotetoliveby #quoted #quotestagram #giveback #donate #community #socialgood #dogood #education #bethechange #givingback #socialchange #clickinmoms #nothingisordinary
