No Birds but Bees

Unfortunately grounded again and as all the birds have left the garden except for the Starlings that have nested in the next door neighbours roof and the ever present Robins there is precious little to photograph. However, this is an opportunity to try out the new 180mm macro lens. Luckily there are plenty of insects present and the bursts of sunlight between the heavy rain showers provide the ideal conditions. Up to present I have to admit the identification is beyond me - just bee, wasp or hoverfly is about as far as it goes. It has whetted my appetite for a day in the field getting up close with some butterflies.
