Computer suffering overload!
Did I take another 500 photos today?
Back up falling behind? :(
Can’t decide what to upload?

    Beautiful capture. I’ve not seen a bee like this before.

  • Hi Bunny, neither had I. I was just standing talking to my Dad in his garden and this neon blue light just flew past my eye. I was off on the chase, I’m just so glad I had the camera around my neck. I had to google it to find out what it was. Just so pretty, I want to find this bee again. :)

    Nice shot Gabe. Is that really what it’s called or did you just make that up???

  • No, Kiri and I googled it and found it was a cockoo bee, I’m not sure if it’s a Neon Cockoo or the Cloak and Dagger. We believe it’s the Cloak and Dagger but if I’m wrong, then someone can correct me and I’ll change the name.

    Gabe :)

    PS. Thanks buddy for the lovely comment! :)
