Bombus Lapidarius

Or, the Red Tailed Bumble Bee, Stone Humble Bee or the Large Red Tailed Humble Bee.

Humble bees and chimbleys, I like the sound of the old spellings.

Bumble or Humble, it was more difficult to get a good shot than I would have thought, set the camera to close up and the insect just kept moving around, with such a shallow depth of field I managed about out of focus shots of the bee and the flowers, and just this one with the bee in focus.

Mind you, if that sounds bad just wait for my incredible RAF helicopter shot.
