Bees and Lavanda

Last year summer, I was looking for bees around the lavender flower by the pond near my house so that I can practice my camera skill.  There is something particularly hard about focusing on a bee and taking a clean photo before it flies away! I’ve tried my best to identify them (hover over photos to see my ID guess), do let me know if I misidentified!

There are 250 species bees in the UK.  Identifying bee species is not easy.

After taking some photos for the bees, I found something scary in the bush.

An orb weaver spider has caught a bee with its web and it was having its meal!

This really creeps me out but I just can’t resist to take a photo.
