    Of course, the blue flowered plant photographs. I note these distinct anthers’ filament’ hairiness—in these clear, fine, close-up photographs.

    Fabaceae —Pea plant, of course. Of course, more evidence, info, photographs or description, required to confidently give a Fabaceae genus and species identification.

    I photographed this sp. with another similar bee, but it was much hairier.They seemed to be visiting different flowers, having collected different pollen.See next post

    For identifying this apparently pink (—photo realistic colour?) flowered pea, i have noticed your reply and more information is required, in the context of no more photos, at least from your recollections. Please note that we cannot assume anything about this plant, which you may take for granted from your observations of it, eg. its habit—we cannot assume it’s a shrub, herb, climber or whatever, eg. leaves—we cannot assume even simple leaves vs. compound leaves or whatever, because this evidence is not provided clearly anywhere within the photo, or in descriptions. This photograph does appear like it, but it could possibly and deceptively simply be Indigofera australis, though i think this quite unlikely and am very familiar with this species, including deceptive close-ups and many various appearances in Vic. and NSW. I give you another way to do this, yourself, especially if you’re used to using Lucid software based keys, The Pea Key, a botanical key to all spp. of Peas in Australia, which has for some years been freely available through the Centre for Plant Biodiversity Research, now the Centre for Australian National Biodiversity Research, here: http://www.cpbr.gov.au/cpbr/cd-keys/index.html .

    Typo correction: "This photograph doesn’t appear like it …"
