One of Britains rarer bees that I found in my own garden dedicated to wildlife.
This little fella was happily collecting pollen on my bed of Cosmos flowers!

The International Bee Research Association.
IBRA has just published a Bee lovers calender and greeting cards using my bee images.
Proceeds going towards research into saving our beautiful bees.
(I am in no way earning from these calendars and greeting cards, I was pleased to donate my work to help)
