All the Pictures!!!

We've had sun this last few days, for what seems like the first time in a couple of weeks T-Shirt temperatures have been with us again.

Consequently there's been a lot to see, not just at cricket matches. I've been in the park and around town the last three days; in the cemetery and around the lakes. There was been a ton of things to see, and photograph while the swifts scream wildly above.

Check out in particular the volucella bombylans imitating a red tailed bumblebee - what a magnificent insect! - and the big queen wasp.

I've loved it.
