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!
