A large flowering bush overhanging from next door has been attracting scores of honeybees and bumble bees. This is the first time I have been able to see clearly how a bee uses the hooks at the end of its legs to hold on to a flower as it moves around. Also the influx of tiny Pollen Beetles can be seen.
I have a feeling that the bee I found earlier in the week which I couldn't identify may have been a genetic aberration as I couldn't find any photos with anywhere near the same markings.
Have a great weekend observing the wildlife around you and if you live in the South East of the UK don't get too wet!
A mainly pictorial record of the wildlife and events in my part of Lincolnshire. My garden has two bird nest boxes and a Hedgehog house fitted with video cameras. There are several bird feeders and a large pond attracting a variety of wildlife to the garden.
Most of the pictures in the main part of my Jottings can be clicked on for larger views.
Many of my video clips are stored on my YouTube account.
