    One day I'll get a decent 'in flight' shot (keep forgetting to ramp up the shutter speed!), until then its blurry bees. . .

    Alas, in the UK we are not seeing the same numbers of bees as in the past and currently they are blaming it on poor weather and it killing off plants/flowers nectar as well as overuse of pesticides that have also killed off many insects that also help spread nectar.

    It is sad that it has come to this and normally at this time of year we would see many "Bumble bees" yet currently, they are very few and far between so hope they have not suffered too much.
