An irregular blog of photos taken by me of insects and other natural history subjects on my travels around Yorkshire, Britain and Europe. Hopefully you'll find them useful in putting a name to your own specimens but always check your identifications with an expert.


Prince of Wales Park, Eldwick, 11/04/12

A quick walk around Prince of Wales Park this morning produced honeybees and several bumblebee species including Red-tailed Bombus lapidarius, White-tailed B.lucorum, Buff-tailed B.terrestris and Garden B.hortorum. There were also a couple of Tawny Mining Bee queens on the Bilberry.
