Two lucky finds in the garden, a very striking Nomada bee (am awaiting an ID if poss on this one) and today, found the most beautiful Tawny mining bee (Adrena fulva) - so lucky to find this one, its the second year running I have found one nesting in the garden. Love these bees, their colour is stunning.
Only a 3 shot chance with this one
and a one shot chance with this one - I was so lucky to catch the colour out of the corner of my eye and saw it land, so waited by the hole for it to emerge. Then I had to be quick as she did a very quick exit lol
