Some Lovely Bees

The only thing to do at the moment is to go out and commune with some bees.

Tiny tiny delicate white faced  Hyleaus bees on the coriander flowers and the furry lamb’s ear. They are such a favourite of mine. No-one ever bought a print of this one ..too much like a wasp people said…..


The normal hover flies look enormous in comparison

Little male Bombus lapidarius sleeping away a rain shower. and without its pollinating bee anymore, the self pollinating bee orchid from a grassy patch by the reservoir.


All that dressing up with no-one left to impress, except a few of us humans…
The male longhorn bee is known to visit this beautiful thing,.. but they are very rare in the UK.
It would be lovely to see one; it is the right sort of habitat with vetchling, clovers and trefoils.
Maybe another day .

  1. Bees make everything better. The Hyleaus bees don't look that wasp-like!
