A few snapshots I’ve taken of late. There are bees everywhere, it’s brilliant. All kinds too and for the first year Tree Bees too which look like mini bumble bees. I haven’t managed to get a shot of one of those yet, but I watch them a great deal. I am now a bee watcher officially. They like me and will come and land on my hand occasionally, being a delicate flower has its perks you know. laughs. The Elderflower tree has a nest with five baby Great Tits in it as well.
