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.

Vampyre bee!

Pretty Clematis.

The size of them!


Honeysuckle in all it’s finery.

A beauty.

Random leaf prints to try out some new ink.

Huge blooms misses! They usually end up looking like blossomy blousy footballs. And so do the flowers bows

Bees collecting  – ‘Do my legs look fat in this nectar?’

Plums this year!

I’ve just managed to get a shot of a Tree Bumblebee!


And as it looked so glorious the Snowbrush Tree reaching away into the blue yonder.
