I've just got back from a weekend in Staffordshire and it was nicely rounded off by a sunny afternoon in Mum's garden. I was pleased to see a few aculeates on the wing today, including a few I could identify. This Tawny Mining Bee Andrena fulva that some how found its way into my shirt. Also buzzing around the garden was this Bombus hypnorum.
Other ginger-haired things in the garden included this unidentified domesticated mammal known as Monty (also called Montgomery Scott, Uncle Monty, Montoid and Gommo).
There is more. The ginger-gene runs strong in my family. As can be seen by my sister and nephew Teri and Rowan.
