Bumblebee in focus

De er små og de er travelt opptatt med sitt. Ofte kan det være venskelig å fokusere på detaljer på slike travle små, men her kan du ta deg tid –
Picture 6456They are small and they’re very busy with all that they do. Very often it may be difficult to focus on these ‘busy-bodies’, but here you may take the time you need –

  1. I so love the Busy Bee’s… we are fortunate this year to have nesting in our garden some Wild Bumble bees.. they are no trouble and buzz happily away… I was worried as we had a very heavy rain storm as I thought their nest in the rockery would be flooded… but they are still there busy as ever..

    Lovely share.. thank you

      I just returned from the mountains and – I have done a lot of macros on bumblebees.
      It may present a warning to us that there was only one species remaining, but possibly there has never been more than on species in this area? I’m not sure! PIctures will be coming at a later date.

      Thank you! That’s the idea! And comparing this picture to the ‘bumblebee fly’, we may observe that the fly still has some way to go before the likness becomes acute. . .
      In the years of late the bublebees have been bothered by mites. I have photographed bublebees with more than 30 or 40 mites in the region around their necks, and of course, they can’t survie that. So what will happen to us when the bublebees no longer can fertilize the plants around us? I’ve read that they are already down by 30% and in some areas of the world – even more!
