Just hope he gets home intact, his saddle bags are bulging. Lots of bees about at the moment, more than I've seen for ages.
Which can only be a good thing.

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.

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.
