Bee on aloe

This aloe is at my sister's home in Valley Center, Calif.
She & her husband are excellent gardeners, and are propagating banksias, and other interesting plants.

Interesting banner, Cal. I had to look at the whole picture to find the bee. It was cut off on my computer.

Many thanks to everyone for all the thumbs, acorns, & nice comments. Smiling

I'm sorry I can't find the original image, but the flower stalk was the main attraction anyway.

I didn't realize the bee was on it at the time.....just lucky.
It's always a nice surprise to find bees, ants, spiders, etc.
later on when I crop the photos, and see details I missed. Smiling

Aloe flowers! And hunt the bee! I tip my hat to you. I have found all sorts of pollinators on flowers by looking at pictures of them later.

Aloe ferox or hybrid maybe?
