'Bombus hortorum is a beautiful, long-tongued bumble bee which targets deep flowers, foraging for pollen and nectar. In this photograph it is probing into the deep throat of Yellow Archangel (Lamiastrum galeobdolon), a member of the mint family (Lamiaceae). Notice the pollen baskets on the back legs, loaded with yellow pollen. It will often visit other deep-throated flowers such as white dead-nettle (Lamium album) and foxglove (Digitalis pupurea). The extraordinary tongue can be seen in Mark's photograph below.'
Also a few wasps around today, and I found that getting the all important face on shot is not as easy as it sounds. But, by using the 'take loads of shots policy' I managed a couple confirming Wood Wasp Vespula sylvetris.
