Mountain Bumblebee at Upper Neath Valley

Bombus monticola
 A few burst of sunshine encouraged a couple of nice insects out at Upper Neath Valley today. The Mountain Bumblebee (Bombus monticola) is one of my favourites insects and always good to see, although I do find them a bit flighty! The Hoverfly (Sericomyia lappona) is also quite smart in my opinion and occurs in quite elevated habitats on both sides of the valley.
