Battling bees? No, one bee that appeared to be fighting its own reflection on the bumper bar of our car but may have been eating something. I couldn't tell.
But this bee is at the centre of another battle. The Bumble Bee was 'introduced' into Tasmania in 1992 and is gradually expanding its range. Some vegetable growers want to see it introduced onto the mainland. What a horrible thought. It's a huge, huge bee and the damage being done in Tasmania is still being assessed.
