This rather large bee was going round and round in circles and appeared injured, but I believe it had bumbled into a spiders web, so I took the opportunity to get off a few shot before removing it to a safer place ...

Thank you all for your comments and votes on 'House Fly ...' and to Dave - have never looked at that image large, so could really kick myself for missing the noise GrinGrinGrin

Thank you all for you kind comments.

Yes, I think it did, because when I went back half hour later it was gone and even though I searched all around I couldn't find it.

Glad you like my Bumblebee Annette. Perhaps it had been slurping nectar Wink
