    Hi there, Scorching day yesterday, but a little cloud came over and with it a little rain so the Bee`s decided to have a nap.
    Here they are are in all their glory doing just that.
    tbh I got no clue on the ID on these.
    South of France.

    Fabulous shots Graham. Wonderful light in them, and their eyes are stunning to look at.

    Cheers Chris, they were a tad bright but a little pp helps. I agree with you, the eyes are just fantastic for something so small like the last Bee.

    What a wonderful set of photos. In conjunction with the beautiful flower (worth a photo on its own) it has to be the first one for me if I had to choose.We're going to Brittany ,near Rennes, next month so maybe I better pack my 100mm macro but the south is much warmer,having said that I think even Brittany will be hot mid-August.
