Got my Wings

By brian1208
I sat on a seat in the garden beside the Penstemon and waited for the bees to play, the light was still very variable but I managed to get a few shots that were closer to my "Wings".

Thanks to Gazza and KeithH I now know that this is a Male Carder Bee which quite obligingly posed for a brief moment on its way between flowers (edited as a result of their kind input to my ID request elsewhere)
