My garden is a hotbed of insect activity just now! I'm certain I have seen more bees this year already, than I did during the whole summer last year.

Bumblebees seem to be especially in profusion ...

but I also saw what I think may be a honeybee ....

I also spotted another garden tiger moth caterpillar. Thanks to Ellie for the identification!

I really hope the bee population is recovering, because we would all starve without them!

I do agree, not many people stop and think about the significance of bees. Fantastic macro photographs.

The bees seem to be HUGE this year too, Bobs. At least, they are down here.
