Whilst I was melting in the garden yesterday, I spotted this rather large and rather fluffy bumble bee.
I keep seeing them in our lavender but every time I go to try and get a photo, they turn and fly off, or they so busy buzzing around that I can't quite get a decent snap.
Our garden fence is covered in passion flowers and we always get an array of insects in there.
This bumble bee was covered from his nose to his tail in passion flower pollen.
He was so busy working that he didn't even notice me and my phone get right up behind him and start snapping away.
I love that you can see how fluffy he looks.
He carried on in the same flower for the next couple of minutes.
