Bees Can't Get Enough Of Our Garden, Especially The Lavender Shrub.

A left alone garden does the trick of providing plenty of food for our bees.

A hovercraft couldn't have landed better. It is far from easy catching a bee in flight as they are so quick between meals. A fast food bee...
Honestly I don't know whether this is the same bee, as we have literally dozens buzzing merrily away. Believe me, I took a lot of photos in order to get this one. When you look through the lens of the camera, it isn't easy to spot such a small thing.
There are different types of bees in our lavender shrub. These ones seem slightly smaller and perhaps are of a lower standing in a bee hive?
I am sure that wherever this bees make their honey, it must have a fair amount of lavender flavour in it. They can spend all day in our lavender and the only time they hover off is when we water the lavender. But only for a second...
The bee looks full as a tick and is perhaps off home to salute its queen.
