I believe this is a very pale male Anthophora plumipes bee - I rather like the pale colours of them when they are faded. Really quick shot of him as they are rapid movers.

Second is a very very sneaky small green crab spider that thought I couldn't see him lol. Blowing a gale in the garden so felt lucky to get this.

Two wonderful shots Linda, that small green crab spider looks very sneaky to me, wouldn't want to be a fly on the other side of that leaf! :lol:

Thanks George - he is only small at the moment so not too much of a threat although that's going to change soon so will keep my eye on the shrub where I found him.

The pale bee looks splendid against the vivid pink.
