I saw a bumblebee species I'd never seen before earlier this month on a trip to Devon with the Bumblebee Conservation trust. This a Field Cuckoo bee, although this male was living on the amazing sand dunes at Brauton Burrows where we were bee surveying and not a field! The females of this species take over carder bee nests but are nowhere near as frequently seen as common carder bees in the UK and are not seen in my part of Kent. The males are a bit harder to identify than the females but can be separated from some other cuckoos by their extensive white tail  #fieldcuckoobumblebee #cuckoobee #bumblebee #bombus #bombuscampestris #devonwildlifetrust #wildflowers #bloomsforbees #naturereserve #bumblebeeconservationtrust #insectphotography #naturephotography #wildlifephotography

This new print ‘Mary Kratantzou vs bumble bee’ is now available on the website! ️ This is the deluxe edition of the original bee. It’s inspired by the ‘Resort 2018’ collection by @marykatrantzou - I love her incredible use of pattern, colour and texture. The paper texture is made from thousands of hand cut tiny paper pieces. ️

I saw my 70th bee species of the year yesterday in my garden! This furrow bee was a bit confusing to identify as males can have a red or a black form but both types of male can be found clustered together to sleep overnight! Females have also been seen nesting in small aggregations in the south where their flight season is longer so here they are considered to be primitively eusocial #furrowbee #lasioglossum #lasioglossumcalceatum #solitarybee #solitarybees #bumblebeeconservationtrust #kentwildlife #gardenwildlife #beegarden #wildflowers #flowersforbees #insectphotography #beephotography #naturephotography #wildlifephotography

I was amazed and very pleased to find this in the woods earlier - a Red-tailed bumblebee queen digging a tunnel! I think it's most likely a new queen looking for a place to spend the winter. Judging by the little pile next to the hole, she'd already been working on it for a while!

A marvellous giant bee  sculpture 40’ tall made from straw and split wood just landing ~ or is he taking off ~ from Snugburys’s Ice Cream farm in Nantwich, Cheshire UK
Surrounded by happy children in a field of wild flowers it dominates the landscape and animates the skies ! 
A masterpiece as always from the artists at @snugburys after a hard to follow giant Beatrix Potter Peter Rabbit that resided in the field the last couple of years.
Their  ice cream is amazing too !!!!!

Moss carder bee (Bombus muscorum). Found throughout Europe but most commonly occupies the British Isles, this species is listed as vulnerable in Europe but the European Red List of Bees. It has declined in recent years due to loss of natural habitats but is still relatively abundant in northern Scotland. This species inhabits moors, grasslands and salt marshes and is known to build its nest above ground. Colonies are typically small, with between only 20-100 worker bees which tend to forage at between 50-200m away from the nest.

We have a bright yellow buddleia up the corner of our garden and I can't say a single bee, insect or butterfly has taken an awful lot of notice of it. Literally round the corner this purple buddleia is covered in bumble bees and butterflies, including a Red Admiral who unfortunately refused to pose for a photograph! So today's post is a bit of a cheat as it does not feature my garden,  but interested to know if anyone else has a yellow buddleia and what they have seen enjoying it?

My daughter found a bumble bee in the garage, it wasn’t doing so well. We brought it into the house fed it a honey and water mixture. We saw it’s little tongue lapping up the liquid and thought she was going to be alright. She was given the name of Peace. But alas Peace did not make it. She passed quietly surrounded by those who cared and appreciated her. She was wrapped in a soft tissue and buried beside a Thyme plant. We sang Amazing Grace and I did a tearful (and terrible!) rendition of Behind Blue Eyes @officialthewho on the guitar #bumblebeeconservationtrust #bumblebeeconservation #bumblebeeconservationsociety

I think cosmos has to be one of my favourite summer annuals and also makes a brilliant gap filler for a sunny border. It is such a colourful, happy and vibrant plant with soft foliage and long lasting blooms. Loved by the bees and hover flies, it will make any garden an attractive place to sit and soak up the summer sunshine.

A Moss Carder bee feeding on one of the flowers in the Machair at Scolpaig a few weeks ago. These beautiful bees are listed as vulnerable on the European red list of bees. The females of the Hebridean variety are unique in being black underneath. The scottish biodiversity list says they are legally protected and it should be prioritised in any area they occur. We have almost 500 objections to the commercial rocket launching facility at Scolpaig, please keep sharing and writing to object. Help us preserve this unique habitat.

The Shrill Carder bee is the rarest bumblebee in England and the focus species of the Making a Buzz for the Coast project I've been helping with in Kent. I have been seeing it most weeks but getting a non blurry photo of it was finally achieved yesterday at one of the roadside verges that are being managed for bumblebees on the Isle of Sheppey. Key identification features to look out for include their orange tail, pale yellow hair bands and a black thorax hair band #seenit #shrillcarderbee #makingabuzz #makingabuzzforthecoast #backfromthebrink #bumblebees #bumblebeeconservationtrust #kentwildlifetrust #kentwildlife #wildflowers #roadsidenature #beephotography #insectphotography #naturephotography #wildlifephotography
