I was determined that I would get a shot of a bumble bee to prove that they too love the phacelia and fortunately a less frenetic individual co-operated.
Aren't they just the flying teddy bears of the insect world?
We also have a patch of borage courtesy of some seeds sent to me by Bilbowaggins of Bagend. The flowers are a lovely shade of blue.
They tend to be shy flowers keeping their faces out of sight so I had to coax this one to look at me. The bees love them too and this patch was also buzzing yesterday.
It was more difficult to catch photos of this activity as the bees don't tend to spend very long at each individual flower as they do the phacelia. That's my excuse for the bee below having a bit of a blurry face.
