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

Thanks Travis. Yes, it is quite striking with the rear end very much like a bright wasp.

Mind you, the colour of the Tawny bee is absolutely stunning when you see them, they really are quite gorgeous.

Beautiful captures indeed, LindaB.


Even though my screen is not calbrated, your second shot seems slightly under-exposed after post-processing.

Many thanks for your kind comment. Yes, it probably is under-exposed actually lol. I didn't want to adjust it too much so as not to lose that fabulous deep colour and to see it as I saw it. I guess I should have adjusted it a tad more.

Thanks very much John. She is beautiful isn't she. I watched her again yesterday coming out of her nest - she is very cautious before exiting as I was watching, a small spider passed the opening of the nest so she ducked down lol. Hope she is ok today though as we have had some torrential downpours and she hasn't fully closed the opening up.
