It amazes just how many different types of bee and hoverfly there are and also how many of them land in your garden. Exquisite shots Carol.

These are so beautiful and I am so envious! Hardly saw any Hovers all the so-called summer and no way one would be around now. After a lovely, sunny day yesterday awoke to yet more snow!

A deeply felt "thank you", Carol for your wonderful UA this morning. Had to do a double take to make sure I wan't imagining things! Grin

The oxalis are coming into bloom now, and in a week or so every olive grove and meadow will be carpeted in yellow
