Orange Flower Bee

I was hiking a popular trail with a friend on a sunny day in spring at Anstey Hill Conservation Park. There are some stone ruins of the pioneering family in the area who began a garden nursery and imported many plants into South Australia. Around these ruins, you can take a break from the trail and explore where the buildings were in the 1800s. There were a number of these orange flowering succulents in flower and the bees were loving life on them.
