There is a honey bee nest in one of our chimneys. It has been there for more than 30 years. They don't do any harm and I don't think they could easily be removed, so we leave them alone! They swarm each year and if we are lucky we see them (spectacular!), and if very lucky they provide a photo op! The queen is in there somewhere and they weren't bothered at all by my approach. I think this would make a good jigsaw puzzle.

Thanks for all the comments on the collared doves over the last two days. I've one or two more which I'll share in a few days.

What a great idea for a photo. Fascinating and I could look at it all day.

I was thinking just the same (not that I'd actually want to solve it, I'm not 'into' jigsaw puzzles). Well caught!

A great pattern pic, Andrew, like the fact they're almost all pointing the same direction 😃 Certainly would make a frustrating jigsaw puzzle! 😁👍

Wow! So many and with eyes in the back of their heads. A great image.

Great shot, and very brave of you.
I have looked carefully but I can't see her majesty. Shame, as if she was identifiable it would also make a good "spot the odd one out" shot.
