Having so much fun with the new Tripod all I need now is a better Macro Lens..Very Happy
Not many Bees or Bugs in the garden today probably because we has a shower of rain..

Bee on the Golden Penda:



Aphids on one of the roses..



Love the bag of pollen on its leg.



This Ladybird looks like it has something growing above its eye..



Found another little Native Bee..



That Bee again..

Great bee pics. Looks like something has been having a go at those aphids as not many are alive thumbs-up

Thanks Gail.. That would be me Laughing
Seriously though I have no idea what was having a go at those Aphids but I wish I had more of them there are thousands of them on all the new rose growth..

Fabulous photo, MA and I love the ladybird, so pretty in their colourful, little spotted house.
I tried chasing some bees yesterday, for a photo...speedy little devils that they are. All I can say is you amaze me how you manage to capture them, they are so elusive...to me anyway.
Top shots.

Thanks so much Fay.. They are a little hard to capture at times, I am certainly not quick Laughing actually I am very slow these days. I think it determination more than anything like when I decide I want to do something I stay there till I do it even if I miss breakfast.

I find in my garden they like the yellow flowers better, so I head for them another plant they love is the Lavender and its a low plant and coming in to bud so I will be able to sit on my little stool and patiently wait for them when it starts flowering.. Very Happy
