Hope you've all recovered from hitting your head against ' The Wall ', as most of you seemed to do.

Back to nature today. Never did understand the stories about the birds and bees, sure somebody will explain.

In the middle of a thunderstorm at the moment, hopefully still connected. And its chucking it down.

I understand about the birds and the bees Peter.
What I can't understand is,

A wonderful set here Peter, v1 love the bird through glass, and the background too, but V2 has it for me, just a super capture.
Have a good day, hot and sunny again here.GrinGrinGrin we could do with a drop of your rain please, the garden is bone dry.

I agree, Peter, I can't see the remotest connection between human sexuality and bees. Apart from anything else, how is a Stork ever going to get inside a bee-hive to put a baby bee in the Queen bee's tummy???
