Amazingly tiny, looks similar to the Australian Stingless Bee Tetragonula Carbonaria.

These tiny native bees (if yours is such) are also valuable pollinators. Have you observed a hive ? Our tetragonula make hives in tree hollows or fallen logs for example.

Wavess ! No.. havent seen a hive....but they could be anywhere in the vicinity. We have alot of wood and pasture around us. They seem to love the white Crape Myrtle... more so than the pink one(with them on that !). They are fascinating ! THANKYOU for the information too. I keep an occasional Journal of this place on another site and I will be able to add the name there !

Hi Pam ! Glad to help with some info. From your description of your surrounds the most likely place for the hive(s) is the woods. Wonderful that your garden provides them with food.
