Normally I don’t post my failed photos… This one I decided to post because…
1. The photo didn’t turn out too bad actually. Although the subject of the shot is out of focus the light on the bells in the background isn’t too bad.
2. This is the first actual sighting of a Common Carder Bee (Bombus pascuorum) thus far this year that I have managed to catch.
There were actually 3 of them on the plant, a Pieris if you are curious, and they were eagerly visiting all the flowers.
None stayed in the garden, which just shows that the nest is elsewhere.
