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.
