Early Insects

Another day and a brief window of sunshine meant another trip down to the local lakeside to admire the snowdrops before they disappear with the advance of Spring.

I took the macro lens for it’s first outing of the year in the hope of finding some early bees and pollinators. Fortunately I wasn’t disappointed and found a few hoverflies and bees darting among the white petals, taking advantage of this early glut of pollen.
