So after a week's Holiday touring the Scottish Highlands I was forced into the garden to tidy things back up again. Unfortunately, at this time of year there are far too many distractions with Buzzy things and insects that need to be photographed.

Tried for ages to capture a Bee but failed every time as the little blighters are so quick. Rather than running after them I decided to sit on an upturned flower pot, focus on an individual flower, then just wait.

Sure enough, after about 10 minutes, this little chap obliged Smile
