Yesterday I showed you the Australian blue banded bee ( click next to see it )

Today it's another very important tiny one known as The Native Stingless Bee (These bees are called TRIGONA or AUSTROPLEBEIA )
We are lucky enough to have a nest on the far end of our property and each season we see them swarming all over the flowers.
About the size of a matchhead and very quick...I always feel lucky to get a partially sharp shot of them :)

They look a bit small compared to our native bees, well taken in such a confined space.
Do they sting ?.
