The birds and the Bees....... (Bumble variety)

It's been almost 2 weeks since my last blog post, so I'm here to post some of the pictures that I have managed to take in the last few days, starting with an increasingly rare sight, beautiful Wildflowers!

These were beside the main road in Keynsham, North Somerset, and were a delight to see in the sun! Such glorious colours, greatly appreciated by the Bumble Bees, Hoverflies and Butterflies! 
  There should be more Wildflower meadows in Britain, they enrich the countryside and give food and shelter to a multitude of little creatures, which in turn feed birds and animals! A win win situation, as well as being beautiful to look at and experience for we Humans!
