The bumble bees have been busy today and are so engrossed in filling up with pollen they have totally ignored me clicking away at them with my camera.
I watched one bee in particular as he made his way around all the Astrantia blooms and his little legs were puffing up with yellow pollen until they looked fit to burst. In months to come I hope someone will be eating Sussex Honey that has some Astrantia pollen from my garden.
I am quite taken with Windows Movie Maker and, until the novelty wears off, I have put together a few photos into a 1 minute film with Flight of the Bumble Bee by James Galway as the background music.
