      Thank you Tobie, Joanne and Dahlia. Flowers in the garden are finally hitting their stride so more pollinators starting to stop by for a visit.

        Thanks Graham. We’re hoping to get over to the coast when things start opening up again. In the mean time photo ops pretty much limited to bugs, birds and flowers. 🙂

      Quite amazing, Dave.   I spent some time looking at this enlarged.   The detail of the hairs on the legs is great – really shows how they can carry pollen.   That eye fascinates me.   Great wing blur – bee busy at work!    Just got a sting yesterday from one in our garden – I’m not allergic so just have 2 purple blotches.   I love to watch them working, like this image shows!

        It means a lot that you liked this image enough to take the time to study it in detail. Thank you. I’ve found a bit of a fascination with insects from time spent photographing them. Especially the pollinators. Sorry to hear about the sting. I’m glad I’m not allergic to them either. Thanks again Anne. 🙂
