Today we have had a dull day with a little rain at times, but pleasant enough temperatures. Due to having cricket practice in the afternoon I haven't done a lot of outdoors stuff today. But, I did have a bit of a bimble around Friary Gardens where I was just able to get a couple of not very good pictures of a fast moving hairy footed flower bee.
They really do shift about! To get a photograph is more luck then judgement.
It's the queen bumbles that are in action at the moment, the two species I've seen being buff tails and tree bumbles. Honey bees were about today, and also some species or other of mining bee; not tawny mining bees as too small.
This species was rather less camera shy and I was able to get a couple of pictures.
Let's see what we see as temperatures rise.
