Buff Tailed Bumblebee

By FeatherFriend
Hi all, a little Bee doing what comes naturally, little devils, they just don't stay still for a second and that's the challenge I suppose Wink
Many thanks for taking time out to view and comment on my Small Tortoiseshell and a special thank you to Helen (helenlinda), Mike (hasslebladuk), Ade (Ade_Osman), Ann (pluckyfilly), Ann (EAS) and Bill (goso) for the UA's, really appreciated as always.

Well detailed Geoff - bees are not easy to photograph, the eyes always seem to get those light spots. I've binned loads this year. Lots in the garden so still some hope of getting one if it stops raining.Smile
