Beauties and the Beasts


By jan65


Look at me … I’m shy.

No, no, no. Look at me, I’m gorgeous …

While everyone’s looking at those show-offs, I’ll just have a gander around here …

Which one shall I choose? Ah, this one smells good …

And I just can’t resist this one … ah that’s good, the queen’s gonna be chuffed with me!

Huh, you’re not the only buzz buzz buzzy bee around here …

Well I shouldn’t be hanging around here chatting to you, I’ve got seventeen thousand mouths to feed …

And I thought I was hard done by!

Good to see the bees still around.

Thank you Lily and Fluff. I was working in the garden today and there were loads of bees around, I find them fascinating to watch as they bury themselves in the flowers, it's so comical!

I've noticed a lot of bees this year.....not too many flutterbies and hardly any ladybirds....Love your bee's trip round your garden :)

Very good Jan! lovely photos too! I've seen a lot of bumble bees and other bees but only 2 honey bees!

Thank you all for your responses. There have been lots of bees, but hardly any butterflies - which is why I rushed for my camera when I saw this one - and I don't think I've seen one ladybird this year. Where have they all gone?
