Bumbles tumbles.............................................................................................

I spent quarter of an hour a couple of weeks ago watching and taking images of bumble bees and insects feeding on the flowers in a friends garden.

 It was a lovely summer evening... which seems ages ago now as the rain keeps falling.




Fingers crossed the weather improves soon.

Really nice shots, Andrew! The flight photo is great! Those aren't easy to do. It's so dry here right now that it's affecting everything. Even with daily watering, our flowers are struggling because of the oppressive heat.

Given the title of my blog, I am always trying to stop action with bees. Tricky little guys to catch.
