yellow flowers and the bee

I was walking around the Belum Rainforest Resort to view things, when I saw this large and interesting tree.... The flowers were stunningly yellow, and the whole tree was covered with flowers. ...... Very majestic and royal.... The feeling was like a dream came through.....


the little bee and yellow flower
I was about to scan
and focus
when this little thing came around looking for nectar.


the little bee
still hovering around. ......
This little bee belongs to the family of kelulut,
the type of bees which love nectar
and use cracks in trees and houses as their home.
They dont sting...

yellow flowers
and the bee


The tree
covered with beautiful yellow flowers.
This rather large tree was located
at the entrance of
Belum Rainforest Resort.

Our little vegetable garden was heavily drenched recently. The moment we thought rain is receding towards the middle of the year, cloud is getting heavier and darker.... Kakdah took a few snaps the other day on the little flood after heavy downpour. I will post it soon.

  4. Bees! They just love flowers like we do :-) Btw, the rain here in PJ also never seems to stop. But today, since the sun is shining brightly now, hopefully it would stay the same till evening :-) Nonetheless, have a fruitful day today!

  7. Ah the bee ... I haven't seen any since - I can't remember when. I used to see a lot of them during my earlier years at mom's place.
    And, your outing with your office mates looked fun.

  13. I like the first photo of the bee in motion.

    Like this yellow flowers too. I have seen many of them around Klang & Melaka. The blooms are in big bunches and they look like orchids from afar.
