Annoyed that I have just clipped the front of its head but as this is by far the sharpest image from an hour of chasing bees round the garden I decided it was going to be posted GrinGrinGrinGrin

I think it is a White-Tailed Bumble Bee but if anybody knows better I shall be pleased to be corrected.

Thanks for your C&C's on the daisies and thanks for looking
Jason

Brilliantly sharp, Jason...never mind its head in the trough instead of in sight.

Not as easy as some photographers make it look!
Boy do they move fast.
Well done even capturing one good sharp image.
