Weekend Snapshots: A Lazy Sunday

Weekend Snapshots: A Lazy Sunday

Today has been a rather lazy Sunday… In fact, it’s been a lazy weekend all round. I’ve had no plans at all, but sometimes it’s good just to have a lazy day (or weekend!), don’t you think?

Rather than been couped up all weekend, I thought I’d better get some fresh air this afternoon. So I headed out into the garden with my Olympus Pen E-PL7 and 60mm F2.8 macro lens. Thankfully, the bees were buzzing about and the hoverflies were, well, not really hovering, but they were about too.








Do you get many visitors to your garden?

    Lovely photos. It’s great how all the details show on the wings. I’m patiently waiting for my sedum to flower, it attracts so many bees and butterflies in to thee garden.

    Lovely photos! We seem to get a lot of wasps but not so many bees. We had a squirrel who visited us but not seen it for a while. We have a mouse living under our strawberry tub though! He’s only dinky so I left him there. x

    Excellent photos!!

    I think bees are wonderful and while I prefer to watch bumble bees, I keep an eye out for honey bees since we now have hives.

    I live in the country so I get all sorts of critters and insects. Some good, some annoying. 😉

  4. I love a lazy weekend and I love bumble bees, thank you for sharing these beautiful photographs. We’ve had a lot of birds in our garden recently, including a Housemartin nest in the eve of our house.

    What a lovely way to spend a Sunday.

    Its funny you should mention this as whilst we have had lots of butterflies we were only just commenting that we had had few of the bees we normally see.

  6. What fabulous photos – all I ever seem to capture is blurry bees!! We have lots of birds in the garden, the lavender is covered in bees, and as the buddleia is just starting to flower, we will soon have butterflies.

    Lovely photos, we have birds, foxes, the local cats, dragonflies, frogs and newts (although they live in the pond) and leafcutter bees have just moved into the beebox.
