I'm still trying to learn every day! Especially as I'm not quite used to the wildlife here (Moved from NL to AUS)

First I saw a blue banded native bee a few days ago, now I've seen evidence of leaf cutter bees in my area as well. Apparently the leaves on my apple trees are their preferred choice out of the leaves my plants have to offer. One of the trees has been hit hard, almost every leaf has a hole cut in it and some leaves have been stripped right down to the main vain, but it's not a problem. Native bees vs my trees, I'll let the bees take their needs, I'm sure my trees will survive. If not, oh well, I'll just replace them later.
