Wow Margaret you are really quite adept with the camera. Great photo! Trying to figure out what type of flowering bush this bee is busily getting nectar from. Michèle
We have always called these kind of plants Hebe- but they have all been renamed recently into the Veronica genus which is quite widely spread in the world.
Absolutely amazing. The wings, the hairs on the bee the flowers..all perfectly done! Really great picture.
I love its wings Karin. I've never seen the detail on those before.
