Nature still astounds

nature abounds

I was having a break yesterday from the endless decorating, sipping a cup of tea on the patio when one of these flew by.

As he kept flying back and forth, I rushed to get my camera and although he was still around he never settled for me to get a picture.

I have never seen one of this colour before, in the sun he looked like burnished copper completely metallic, an amazing sight.

    Sadly James I didn’t get the picture, this is a library shot and it doesn’t do him justice.

    Our farm in England was an oasis of the most unusual insects,so much so that had we wanted to have it listed as a Natural Conservation Area we could have[but it would have placed too many planning restrictions upon it].

    One day whilst sitting in one of the gardens, a HUGE bumble bee landed on my leg. I stroked it’s fur and was amazed how soft it was-like the finest mink,the colours spectacular close up. We also use to get dragon flies at our koi pond who were a kaleidoscope of colours,almost a prism.
