18/04/2021 After a week of frosts and icy winds it looks like spring is returning.
Western Honey Bee (Apis mellifera) taking a drink.
As above, thirsty little fellows despite the colder weather...
As above but I liked the shadow.
Bumblebee (Bombus magnus) in the quince tree...
Blossom on one of the Acer trees.
European Orchard Bee (Osmia cornuta) on the apple blossom. A solitary bee...
Speckled wood (Pararge aegeria) and Persian Speedwell flower (Veronica persica).
Not sure what this bee is, I did not get to see its body, maybe one of the sweat bees!
House centipede (Scutigera coleoptrata) 15 pairs of legs, think it is missing a few! Without the flash...
and with the flash.
