This is great, like you I`ve left a few thistles and some nettles and we have had loads of bees ...... but yours must be very well behaved, mind wont keep still long enough for me to get a pic ......... or is it me just to slow.

Tea for two indeed. Super photo. Pix like this are so difficult to take, as insects aren't really aware of the need to pose!

Hi Cate...correct ! Thank you.......

Wow~ good job Jane. the echinops are blooming in my garden and the bees are having a field day... No small accomplishment to catch not just one ...but two...so occupied with their work that they don't fly off when the shutter starts clicking~~! spotted a bumble the size of a landrover in the hosta yesterday!!

Wow Lori ! Its great to see so many bees in our gardens this year..all types and sizes too !

24 Jul, 2010

 

That's so true! last year folks were commenting on the lack of bees in their gardens... not so this summer, thank goodness.
