Bee Overload

Another weekend of taking mining bees alongside the river stour was a successful one.  As you will see I kept quite a lot of bee shots.  The dandelions are almost over now so this will be my last visit to this location.  But yet again it has been a great spot for them.  If you were one of the people passing by enquiring what I was up to.  These are the bees I was taking.

This red bellied one, I believe is a bee – but maybe a wasp.  Am yet to get a firm id on it.

A video slideshow of all the Mining Bees that I took at White Mill this year is now available
