Managed to see a lot today while walking between our two buildings.
My wildflower mini meadows, which I thought were over for the year, have had a resurgence of birds foot trefoil coming back into flower, demonstrating beautifully how it gets its "Bacon and Egg" nickname.
The red tailed bumblebees were back all over it.
In a more organised garden area, rich blue lavender plants are alive with honeybees, and a very photogenic drone fly.
The 5 spot burnet moths are now starting to cluster on top of thistle heads, an irridescent ball of red spots.
Today's first for you is my first small skipper shot of the year, the little orange buggers have been not wanting to pose until today.
