  2. I've never seen a bee fly, I know my eyesight is getting worse but I've seen so many photos of them on blogs this year and yet still haven't seen one myself.

    1. That's the challenge, Elaine. The last was the hardest as the bees didn't stay at each tint flower for long/

  7. It's often difficult to tell the difference between bees and flies. I love watching them all flit around the garden doing their thing!

    1. I've heard lots of people refer to honeybees as wasps, Linda. A long as it isn't wearing yellow and black stripes you're OK. :)

  14. Those bees seem to be posing for the photo! We have a bees nest in our compost bin, but i think they're bumble not honey bees.
