A blog about Lamb Island in Moreton Bay, Queensland – a unique little paradise under forty kilometres as the seagull flies from Brisbane CBD.
Because of restraints on time, and let’s face it, only a limited amount of material on a small island, we’re now recycling selected earlier posts.
There’s not a comment facility, but if you have a question, you can use the email gizmo near the bottom of the right-hand column.

Local bees.

Lamb Island seems to have plenty of Australian native bees (and introduced European bees too). The native bees in these pictures were actually less than half the size I’ve shown them, as per the circular inset above, maybe eight millimetres long (a third of an inch). But they still do their bit, and in fact are said to be more efficient at pollinating native flora than the imported ones.
