World bee day

 As it’s world bee day today I thought I would show a few photos of bees in the garden.  These were not all taken today as I didn’t have time.  As far as I can tell in these photos we have the common carder bumble bee (Bombus pascourum), the red tailded bee (Bombus lapidarius), white tailed garden bee (Bombus lucorum) and a small tree bee (Bombus hypnorum).  We do get a few other species but I haven’t yet taken any decent photos of them yet.
