Buzzy garden

the garden is awash with bees at the moment…a few pics I can’t ID them…
but think the one butterfly is a tatty tortoiseshell

Great blog Sheila and terrific photos - that Astrantia maxima is a big attraction for them isn't it. Photo no.2 with the movement in the wings is my favourite. :-)

My garden is simply "awash" right now. Sick of the rain! So, no bees, nor anything else, around. Therefore, have really enjoyed your super pics, Lw. Like Muddy, I think No2 is amazing!
