Taken at Kingston Lacy. The gardens are lovely, plenty of interest. The bees are attracted to this plant, the Pulmonaria, a good plant to have in your garden if you are interested in helping our bees.

Tawny Mining Bee

I bought myself a Lumix DMC-TZ25 camera. I took this picture using the macro, it has been heavily cropped but the results are good, well pleased with the camera. I got it for my handbag so everywhere I go I have a camera with me and no missed opportunities, I hope:-) This is a Tawny Mining Bee, it is tiny and it does not sting.
