One of my very favourite bumblebees, the Common Carder Bumblebee Bombus pascuorum which is carrying quite a full load, and Bugle Ajuga reptans, which has come into flower.

    1. Thank you, Ellen πŸ™‚ The Bugle does attract quite a lot of pollinating insects and is always a joy to see in its colours this time of the year.

    1. Thank you, Jill πŸ™‚ The Common Carder Bumblebees really like these Bugle. I am glad I could get the shots in between pauses of the bee’s flight.
