Thank you all so very much for your most gracious comments and appreciated votes following yesterdays upload of the Magpie Moth.

Todays image was captured only minutes from my home whilst out with my camera.

A little poem about a Bumble Bee to start the day with a buzz....

BZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.....
What do you suppose
A bee sat on my nose
What do you think
He gave me a wink
He said "I beg your pardon
I thought you were the garden."

Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin

Good bee shot not easy to succeed as they have a habit of disappearing inside the flower after the pollen and never seem to reappear
