Bingley Bugs

By LynneJoyce  
A dozen photos taken yesterday at Bingley St Ives estate.It was a walk with Ansel that started off in torrential rain but followed with quite pleasant weather so I was able to take the camera out.

The opener and V's 4, 6 & 9 feature the torpid bee that I rescued with a drop of honey, the honey that you can see clearly in V4. To explain, in the bee season I always carry a small pot of honey and a small stick (acquired from cafes) so that I can administer a drop to bees that have become torpid from being caught out and about by a sudden cold snap or rainstorm. They can run out of energy and often die, but a drop of honey gives them enough energy to get back home. This one consumed the honey with relish and I hope that she made it home again.

The rest speak for themselves I hope. Thank you for viewing and I hope that you enjoy at least some of these shots.

Love the ladybird and the blacker one is striking against the green leaves.
Great that you care so much about the bees.
