Even the bees are getting their yellow clobber on for the Tour de yorkshire SmileSmile
Excellent capture Peter. After all the talk of declining populations it's good to hear
there are still plenty of bees around.

Super capture Peter. I love bees, good job no one around when I plant out my window troughs, I have a cotoneaster and it's usually full of them about three in he's away from me, so I talk to them. (Mad woman!). I love the sound of bees buzzing, completely different from wasps.

Couldn't get to comment on this earlier, as just after commenting on your previous upload EPZ ground to a halt! Sad A super close-up, Peter, when I've tried to photograph bees they won't stay still long enough! Wink

A terrific capture of this bee who has been so busy on that beautiful bloom.
I can't say I have seen many down here in Cornwall, just lots of horse flies, that bite!

I don't like bees Peter,
ever since I knocked over my beer
while trying to get the one that was buzzing around my head !!

I've never seen such a pollen load.
Great capture.

Love bees and have seen lots around the garden this year.
In fact we had a bumble bee colony in our bought box, but sadly the wax moths spoilt it
half way through the season.
We will try to exclude the deadly moths next season with an added 'bee-flap' over the entrance.
