Bumbling about ....

... in the garden. Got home from work with sunshine still bathing the garden, and noticed a fairly relentless procession of Early Bumblebees to a potted (I think French) lavendar. So I decided to have a go at the always-frustrating photography of active bees. I pretty much failed, but in the process I did manage to record five bumble species in the garden without too much effort. Common Carder and Buff-tailed evaded the camera, but I managed to snap these (amongst a lot of blurry duff shots).
