    Yeah we remember the old song. :smile: Thanks for looking Tom.

    Thanks David. I've been trying for a long time to get at shot of a bee in profile ready to land. Now I only need a more quiet background.

    Thanks Victor. If you try long and hard enough sometimes you get lucky.

    Thanks Jeff. We haven't had many this year either.

    Thanks for the ID Harry. I've been googling a little and it appears to be two Plateumaris sericea if I'm right.
     
  15. Very nice, it is excellent when those bees are covered with pollen.

    Thanks. They are amazing. Sometimes they are so covered with pollet that it's a wonder they can still fly.

    Thanks Bob. Yes it is kind of cute. :smile:


    Hej Jukka.

    Thanks for your comment and link. I often go to this site too. Exciting discovery. I have mailed with this guy: http://www.keld-rasmussen.dk/naturfotoindex.php#Insekter, Guldsmede. He has given me a lot of interesting places with Odonatas in my area of the world. (North of Copenhagen). I just got a book today about Danish Odonatas, 280 pages filled with information. I'm looking forward to reading it.
