Welcome Back Bumbles

Yesterday a little after my quick early morning visit to a patch of daisies, I ventured out again around the village. It was warm but with a cold wind which was making my shots a bit tricky as flowers and leaves swayed at unhelpful moments. However I did get a fair few nice shots of lovely springy things.

I was really pleased to see that the Bumblebees were busy on the Flowering Currants over by the village pond, and even more pleased to have a break in the wind where I managed to get a few decent shots. I love the low throbbing hum of a large Bumblebee approaching. In the past that might have made me run a mile but now I am not afraid of the bees, just pleased to see them and of course, the camera comes out! Wasps are another matter!

  1. Lovely bee shots. We seem to have a lot of really big bumble bees this year. It is good to see them of course, but either there are a lot of queens or they have been eating a lot over the winter!
