Wow, those are really nice... especially the wasp that appears to be burrowing.

The Bee wolf, oh the burrow all right! Females stock the burrows with about 150 honey bees for their young, this is how they get the bees!

That is amazing. It also seems cruel, but that is a common reaction when we see predation. Too bad they victimize our lovely and useful honey bees, but that is nature. I am very impressed with the inflight photo.

Now that spring is just around the corner in the UK, I'm taking the macro setup out on my daily walks. I Found this Yellow dung fly on Dandelion the other day.

Nice! Looks like it is washing its hands.

Yes, a whole new season is coming up for those of us in the northern hemisphere. Can't wait.
