Pollinators On My Berry Tree


Now that my Indian Blackberry/Syzygium cumini tree is blooming, I'm keeping track of all the pollinators that come to the blossoms. Here's a skipper. There's a bee in the photo below.




The Common Crow butterfly came to feed yesterday, rather late in the afternoon.


A Peacock Pansy butterfly and a hoverfly (maybe) in the background.



I couldn't get a better picture of a Grass Yellow butterfly busy feeding.




Among all the pollinators, the bees are the largest in number. Some are larger  than the one in this picture.


I'm linking up to Nature Notes.

These are SUCH great shots. And I am impressed you can name all the little creatures. :). This goes great with Michelle's post at Rambling Woods about pollinators!

Anne, these are the blooms of the Indian blackberry tree. The fruit will start to ripen by the end of May. It's a very common fruit tree in gardens in our area.

Lovely photos again Kanak. I remember seeing the Peacock Pansy on your blog before, it really is lovely.

I also enjoyed the previous post and loved seeing the Brown Shrike. My goodness, if I had a Shrike in the garden people would be queuing from far and wide to see it!! :-)

Wow, everything in these pictures seem much larger than usual, or at least what we have here.

These are lovely photographs, and it is so interesting to know the names of the creatures. I wouldn't know what each one was called.

Pięknie kwitnące drzewo Berry jest wspaniałym miejsce dla motyli i pszczół. Bardzo miło się to oglądało. Pozdrawiam.*** Beautiful flowering tree berry is a great place for butterflies and bees. Very nice to be watching it. Yours.

There are so many insects I don’t know even their existence needless to say their names. I saw the bloom of Indian blackberry tree for the first time. Thanks for everything.
