redmasonbee Coming home from the super-market, I noticed this red mason-bee (Osmia bicornis) stuck in the web of a rabbit-hutch spider (Steatoda bipunctata). The spider was out, trying to deliver the killing bite.

Obviously I shifted into overdrive, ran inside and exchanged my groceries for the camera and ran back out to capture the action. By then, the spider had decided it wasn't worth it and hid somewhere while the bee spent a couple of minutes struggling before getting out of the web and flew off.

redmasonbee Buzzzz off 🐝

When you’ve been for a fly about and return home for a rest, only to discover another guy has nicked it! ‘Please can I have my tunnel back....pretty please?’ 10 minutes later, and after a fair bit of swearing, this little male reluctantly found another hole. *Edit: a female had pinched his tunnel. The decision between getting his tunnel back or potential future romance must’ve been a tough call 😊

redmasonbee More hatchlings 🌤

Some more females RM bees decided to hatch out and join the world this morning. 
All immediately flew and fed and started investigating around the garden. A little while later, a cloud rolled in from nowhere and it started to hail ☹️
Whilst checking the cocoons I noticed one had started chewing out as the temperature dropped. She has been placed into a clean bee with supplies and she can fly 🤗 but it’s raining right now, so hoping for a sunny spell around the corner to get her out too 🐝

redmasonbee You may remember that I have been observing the development of the red mason bee grubs in our bee house. The layers of the house can be taken apart for inspection and I had a nice surprise this week. The pollen has been eaten and now the grubs have pupated. They will stay in this stage until next Spring, when hopefully the bees will then emerge.

redmasonbee This week we’re unable to post or talk about anything other than solitary bees because... it’s SOLITARY BEE WEEK!! Yay! 
Solitary bees don’t live in hives, they don’t produce honey, generally they don’t sting and they don’t have a queen. And they are awesome pollinators. 
Check out @solitarybeeweek for ways to get involved and to make a pledge to bee more friendly. 
We started Solitary Bee Week last year when we realised how few people have heard of These brilliant ‘other’ bees and now we love to spread the word! 📷 by @gokottafilm

redmasonbee It’s the last fortnight of my exhibition FRAY at @verdantdundee. Looking at pollinators and wild flowers.
Finishing on Sunday 30th June. 
This 140 x 250cm digital print on linen, printed by @catdigital is off to a new home on the 30th, which I’m very pleased about.  Free entry, open daily.

redmasonbee A very tatty and extremely late flying red mason bee (Osmia bicornis) 🐝 on my shed last Sunday... making the most of its last bit of life in the sun 🌞
I thought it was a different species at first as it’s black however it’s just because it’s an old one and all its red hairs have fallen out 👵🏼 giving it a dark metallic look.
Here you can clearly see it’s 3 simple eyes or ocelli on the top of its head in between its 2 compound eyes 👀 which is typical in the order Hymenoptera (bees, wasps, ants and sawflies) 🐝 🐜 they are made up of a single lens each, and its thought they are light sensitive, with bees using them to orientate themselves towards the sun 🌞🐝🤷🏻‍♂️.

redmasonbee Bamboo and peeling paint . When we lived in #Droitwich I built a #beehotel for the #redmasonbee and #bluemasonbee that used to visit our garden. This was left behind with @stargirlj22 when we headed North. This was the replacement that @stargirlj22 found for me one Christmas and has sat on the wall waiting for occupents. In 3 years we havehadbut one resident and it is now looking a little worse for wear. I hope we might still fill it before it is retired or falls apart. #Cumbria #solitarybees #peelingpaint #photoaday #july 31/365

redmasonbee As Solitary Bee Week draws to a close we would like to show our gratitude for all buzzy little superheroes with a message from our very first EcoTales song, inspired by them.

Not all us humans realise how indebted we are to the genius of Bees. Just imagine a world where we all understood the enormous role these busy creatures play in the delicate balance of life. It would be a riot of colour free from chemicals, with summer air scented by delicious nectar & pollen rich flora… 🐝🌺🌻🌷 Seeds For Bees and all our EcoTales podcast stories and songs are available free @ ecotales.co.uk and on @iTunes, @Spotify, @GooglePlay & @Podbean

redmasonbee 🐝 Bees 🐝

We were having lots of bumble bees visiting the garden earlier in the summer. I’m not too good on identifying them but I believe the buff tailed is the most common variety, but for some reason they’ve all just completely stopped visiting. I’m not sure if they have come to the end of their life cycle or maybe it’s because they absolutely loved my lavender and it has now finished flowering but it’s very early, they usually stay most of the summer. But my wildflowers have now flowered and we are having a few of these bees in the garden. I think it might be the red mason bee due to its colouring but I’ve never seen them before in our garden and it’s so lovely watching them busy on the flowers🌸 🐝 🌺

redmasonbee Kids really get how important the natural world is to our survival, more so than most adults. We were lucky to meet and chat with lots of really cool kids about nature at our first event. They came up with lots of different promises to help reverse the damage adults have caused our wild world. With Solitary Bee week underway we can all do small things to help these amazing little creatures, after all, they work so hard and provide us with so much. 
So what can YOU do? Set wildflowers free, in parks, schools on roundabouts and rings round roadside trees!!!! Plant Seeds and flowers for bees in your garden or window box
Embrace nectar and pollen-rich dandelions 
If you see a bee in distress make it a drink of water and sugar
Buy organic whenever as you can
NEVER use chemicals in your garden

redmasonbee These little Red Mason Bees are superb pollinators and are one of the first solitary bee species to emerge in the Spring, rapidly flitting between flowers. #solitarybeeweek⠀⠀

redmasonbee It's Solitary Bee Week 🐝 The topic of bees comes up a lot at our office as two of our staff are Bee Guardians for #MasonBeesUK . The Bee featured in this photo is a Red Mason Bee. They are a type of solitary bee, bees that do not sting or produce honey but are great pollinaters. There are over 240 species of solitary bees in the UK alone! Unfortunately their population in the wild is in decline. With Bee Lodges such as this one used by our office staff, we are able to help safeguard the future of these bees providing them a safe place to nest! Another great way to support the solitary bees in the UK is by having native wild flowers in your garden. A few of us in the office have used #BeeBombsDorset which are a great way to help bring the bees back. How are you helping solitary bees? #greenandblueUK #BBCwildlifemagazine #masonbeesuk #solitarybeeweek

Tree bumblebee, white-tailed bumble bee, garden bumblebee, wool carder bee, common carder bee, red-tailed bumble bee and red mason bee. There is one more that I think might be a heather mining bee and a little shaggy one that might just have been tired or worn out 🤔 #bee #bees #bumblebee #treebumblebee #whitetailedbumblebee #woolcarderbee #redmasonbee #wildlifegarden #tinygarden #inmygarden #mygarden #commoncarderbee #redtailedbumblebee #beefood

redmasonbee Did you know that Solitary Bee Week takes place this year from the 1st-7th July? It’s a week designed to spread the word about these ‘other’ bees - these bees that don’t produce honey, don’t swarm and don’t live in hives but who are darn good pollinators and all round good guys and gals that we can all help look after in our own gardens and backyards. Check out @solitarybeeweek to see how you can get involved and make your pledge to #earnyourstripes

redmasonbee 3 weeks ago I posted a video showing the Red Mason bee grubs in the bee house. This is yesterday. Look at them now! They have really grown. A lot of the pollen has gone in the front cells but the grubs are smaller. Hope they mature so that the others can emerge too.

redmasonbee The Red Mason Bees (Osmia bicornis ssp. cornigera) seem to have had a good year. Loads of nesting tubes filled with pollen and developing larvae.

redmasonbee Red Mason Bee (female) - ‘Osmia Bicornis’: Sexual dimorphism is observed in this species ie. females are larger than males. They get their name from their habit of nesting in cavities between brickwork, although they also happily frequent solitary bee hotels. They are polylectic, meaning they forage pollen from various different flowering plants. @bumblebeeconservationtrust #redmasonbee #beehotel #solitarybees #osmiabicornis #dimorphism

redmasonbee The bee block b*lls up 🤦‍♀️ My primary group of solitary bees have always been my leaf cutters. With moving away from bamboo this year and trying different approaches I’ve missed a step. I had a routine, rhythm and procedure that’s kinda gone on the fritz. Where ever possible, I like being able to carefully remove the bees to overwinter and keep them safe. Though the Red Masons going into wooden posts and various other developments means in the chaos of new routines, I completely forgot to line my bee block for protection. I should know better then to forget something so basic. The leaf cutter bees do not like going into basic paper lining from what I’ve seen so far. So it’s not a one design helps all situation. I’d been so happy I could move this awesome little bee block about until in use too.
I’d placed a protective mesh barrier over the Red Mason’s finished row and I very carefully moved the bee block indoors on Friday. The block will be put into an emergence tank next Spring much like @colin_purrington does to rotate bee accommodation to keep things fresh/clean. Even though I need to factor in the female nesting in here was getting on in her life, I’d appreciate seeing what’s left behind after they hatch next year. 
Whilst I’m getting a fair few comments about screwing with the balance between bee and predators, trying to understand how to keep bees safe and healthy is my priority right now. I’d like to think in a parallel universe, there’s a version of Earth that has a huge bee number problem to the point of an invasion, that protecting the predators would be in their interests to restore the balance. I know everything has it’s place and designed by Nature for that reason 🐝

Feel like a massive numpty 😣

redmasonbee No room at the Inn, after a bumper year of red mason bees. I've had to send the others down the fence to the less salubrious homemade stable. The innkeeper over there is a rather grumpy false-widow spider, who lives in the upper-left apartment. I wouldn't recommend the meals in that place 🤣

Rescued one Mason Bee this morning caught out overnight not sure if it’s from our boxes but keeping it warm and safe until the sun comes up a bit more.

redmasonbee Spotted a group of small bees hovering around a wall? These are red mason bees, common, gingery solitary bees that nest in the crumbling mortar of old walls. They don’t actually create new holes in walls, choosing existing holes which they fill with mud and pollen, laying a single egg in each until the cavity is full 🐝

redmasonbee Coming home from the super-market, I noticed this red mason-bee (Osmia bicornis) stuck in the web of a rabbit-hutch spider (Steatoda bipunctata). The spider was out, trying to deliver the killing bite.

Obviously I shifted into overdrive, ran inside and exchanged my groceries for the camera and ran back out to capture the action. By then, the spider had decided it wasn't worth it and hid somewhere while the bee spent a couple of minutes struggling before getting out of the web and flew off.

redmasonbee How amazing is this! This is what I found inside our bee house. These cells have been produced by the Red mason bee out of chewed up soil. Then each cell has been filled with pollen that the larvae can then feed from as it reaches maturity. Looking forward to including this in the Wildlife Garden Sketchbook course at Kingcombe in August.

Our solitary bee home is being used by what looks like a Red Mason Bee (Osmia bicornis) 🐝🏠🙌 This common bee likes to nest in hollow plant stems and old brickwork. After mating, each female builds it's own nest; lining each "cell" with mud and pollen before laying a single egg, until the cavity is full. The larvae will hatch and develop, pupating in autumn and hibernating over winter. . #ourbrightfuture #OurBrightFutureGWT @obrightfuture #solitarybees #redmasonbee #cheltenham #freegarden #freecourse #16to24yearolds #bee #bees . .
redmasonbee How many eyes does a bee have?
The answer is 5!
As well as two big eyes they also have 3 ocelli' eyes on top of their head. These are simple eyes used to detect movement. They can be see on this Red Mason Bee, Osmia bicornis.

redmasonbee News from the bee hotel. 2 important discoveries this week.1. Bees seem to have their own pheromones to identify where they have started their nest. 2. They sleep in the chambers they have begun to fill and emerge with the early morning sun as temperatures rise above 12 C, stretching slowly until warm enough to fly. Loving this new experience 💕

EDIT: This is a Red mason bee (Osmia bicornis). I had assumed I was rescuing all the same species and never looked closely! Thanks to Buglife Scotland team on Twitter for correcting me!

Red Mason bee #allotment #redmasonbee "The Red Mason Bee is a common, gingery bee that can be spotted nesting in the crumbling mortar of old walls. Encourage bees to nest in your garden by putting out a tin can full of short, hollow canes."
redmasonbee Bee Block Bee 🐝 (Formally known as the artist Fence Post Bee) 😄

In the hottest area of my garden, Bee Block bee is busy at work 🐝

Tons of other bees are in different areas of my garden depending on when the sunshine falls on their accommodation, nectar/pollen availability, and of course, easy access to nesting material.

I’ve watched the Red Masons females collecting pollen on their specially designed tummy fluff. It takes under a minute between trips before heading back to their unprotected cell. Same with nectar gathering. Collecting materials however seems to take much longer. Out of all the females in my garden, this little female appears to be the smartest!  She’s nesting near nesting material, pollen and nectar...who says you can’t have it all?
Also nesting at just a foot off the ground, I love how my new bee block bee dances to her unique tune. 
Having had some fried bee larvae in the stupid heat of last year’s insanely hot weather (thank you climate change) this block being cool has many meanings 🤗

redmasonbee Red Mason Bee, i think 🤔 although I might be totally wrong.
One of the bees that I actually managed to photograph today. Not that many in my garden today,probably due to the lack of flowers although that is gradually changing as I'm creating a Wildflower Garden for the Bees and Butterflies

redmasonbee Fence post bee 🐝 
I’ve had a female who’s been enjoying nesting at a foot off the ground in my wooden posts. I’ve moved my @greenandblueuk bee block in full sunshine in the hope she wanders in. Tonight she’s finished her row and finally moved into the accommodation I’ve ear marked her for 👍🏻 Will seal this row with mesh tomorrow morning and hopefully this little one will enjoy her new digs 🤗🐝 Look at that cute face though 🤗💕🐝 #redmasonbee #solitarybees #beeblock #beebuddies #hellolittleone #mylittlefriend #bee #wildbee #pollinators #pollinatorgarden #savethebees #30dayswild #365dayswild #nature #naturephotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #greenandblue #🐝

redmasonbee This beautifull Red Mason Bee (Osmia bicornis) checked in a few weeks ago in our selfmade insect hotel. Like her solitary friends she has prepared her nest cells. The bees whose nests are exposed to the sun and heat build vestibules more frequently. The material used to build the nests is mud mixed with their mandibles, but the sides of the tunnel in which the nests are located are usually not lined with mud, with the exception of some irregularly arranged nests.

redmasonbee The Red Masons ladies 🐝

With ‘glorious weather’ for this time of year...which is now code to me watching the weather report every morning to mean ‘its unseasonably hot/dry’, keeping the mud pile wet is important for my Spring bees that need Spring conditions. They need wet/damp mud to make cells for the next generation of babees. I have been monitoring a little female RM bee who’s nested in a wooden post. At under a foot off ground level she completed her row and promptly moved into...another flipping post that I’d failed to spot having checked them all (apart from that one 🤦‍♀️) The girls have been active during warm weather and been busy with the leaky tap on. Apart from a few days where they just didn’t want to move at all? 
I have a lot of flies lurking about, and these are not a fly you want to keep an unguarded cell exposed too. Plus living on the coast means I have the sea breeze, and though it’s much warmer inland it can be nippy here by the sea. They’ve all moved from their wooden bee hotel to a bamboo hotel (apart from two) at the moment, and the smaller bamboo canes are being filled up quickly as the winds dropped. The fundamentals are there now and they’ve got catching up to do. They also seem to be avoiding certain cobwebs in the mud caves they’ve created? I spotted something similar last year but thought it was a fluke...unlike a distressed carder bee I had to untangle this morning 😬

redmasonbee Awaiting our first guests of the summer 🐝

Solitary bees are fascinating to watch and a wonderful way to introduce children to bees. They have no queen or honey to protect, meaning they are non-aggressive and will not sting.

Our Bee Bricks are a perfect nesting site for solitary bees, including the beautiful red mason and leafcutter bees. *Place in the garden in a warmish south or west facing spot around 1 metre off the ground and ideally close to some bee-friendly plants (like the Lavender stoechas in our photo). Let nature do the rest. They can easily be retrofitted into a wall too*

redmasonbee Some of the males aren't even waiting outside for the females to emerge, but waiting inside the emergence chamber to pounce on them as soon as they chew through their cocoons. Definitely guarantees their genes get passed on! Smart.
