Buff-tailed bee (19.12.13)

This is the Buff-tailed bumblebee in my garden today. This bumblebee is still out and about through the winter, particularly if it is mild. This plant, the Mahonia is a great source of food for it during the winter months.

I wouldn't have expected to see bees at this time of the year.

Thats astonishing Lyn, I'm sure we are going to suffer for this reasonable weather before long.

I too had not realised that bees are out and about at this time of year and, if I'd seen one, would probably assume that it was not very well!

Have a great Christmas, Linda, and all the best for 2014.
