Caption: Orchid bees are one of my favorites here at the sanctuary. We have several building nests around the property, including one metallic green one in my shade curtain. .
A male orchid bee will travel up to 30 miles to collect the scent of an orchid to use in a perfume he makes for his mate. Talk about #lovelanguage !
.
The orchid makes the bee work for it though. The bee must crawl through the pollen to reach the scent pad, thus pollinating the orchid. .
We have many species of orchids, but there are two that produce an intoxicating scent that bring all the boys, I mean bees, to our yard. They also love a type of white ginger flower. .
I miss the neroli scent of our big orange tree at 8th&Bee, but these new scents really make up for it. #orchids #orchidbee .
