Bee sightings

Yesterday I saw another Tree Bumblebee (Bombus hypnorum) on Bramble flowers in a hedge at Pontarddulais showground - unfortunately I did not have my camera with me as I was walking the dog in the rain.
Today in the garden there were a few bees around in very threatening conditions, including a male B. lapidarius on Viper's Bugloss (photo above) and Cornflower, B. terrestris on Opium Poppy and B. pascuorum also favouring flowers of Viper's Bugloss.
