Wood Sorrel

By KarenFB
I've just come back from a walk down by the pond. It is gorgeous out there! Wandering amongst all the Primroses, Celendines and Wood Sorrel was a real treat!

The bugs have started coming out now, on my wander I saw several different Hover Flies, a Peacock Butterfly and a Bee Fly (of which I only caught it's bum, so not for sharing today).

I thought I would share this Wood Sorrel instead (hopefully I shall be able to get a decent Bee Fly image soon!).

Such a delicate little flower, Karen, and perfectly captured. All I've managed with bee flies is a totally oof set of images so far Smile. The one time I could have caught one at rest on my leg was when I didn't have my camera to hand Sad Carol

Saw my first butterfly of the year yesterday. Think that was a peacock too although it fluttered away so fast I didn't get a good look. But did have a huge bumble bee sunbathing on my front path today. Smile

SUch a pretty flower, Karen.
Lovely capture.

A lovely image of spring Karen, it looks like you are ahead of us further South although I did see my first bumblebees of the year today and a peacock and brimstone butterfly. As for catching the bee fly on camera you have no chance it bee flying far too fast for your little compact to snap!Wink
