Thursday 18 April 2013: Buff Tailed Bumble Bee
Yesterday when I got home there were loads of bee flies and bumble bees flying around. I didn't get a decent picture of them and today after work and badminton I thought I'd try again. Today there was nothing flying about, even though it was nice and sunny - I suspect the showers had sent them home for the day.
Instead I thought I'd try an indoors macro of a stamp. We use to have a landlord who sent every letter with a fancy commemorative stamp on the envelope. I had a hunt round and found this one with a bumblebee on it as a surrogate. I was going to crop it but I thought the Peter Sellers stamp at the bottom corner was appropriately humorous so I left it in.
