I spotted this beautiful bumble bee relaxing on a stem of wild barley in the meadow, he let me take a photo, then started to move around, so I encouraged him onto a bramble flower, where he started to feed.

First I must apologise for missing so many of your brilliant uploads Carol, have just gone back to where I last visited, and was dismayed on going to the next days, to read of your predicament, I've gone through each day since to see what developments may have transpired to alleviate your difficulties, but it appears there is no betterment so far. If a fund is set up, and I can find a way to add my contribution, I would most gladly do so. As many have said over the past week, this is a great site with everyone willing to do what they can to help a person in need, hopefully there's light at the end of the tunnel for you.
Seems a bit trite to be commenting on this upload, or any of the others, but as I said at the start, your abilities in close-up work is so brilliant it would be unfair not to commend you on your skills. I gladly do so now!
Rgds., Jim
