There were delays in uploading posts towards the end of the Q2 thread, so hopefully a new one will solve the problem. Going by the quaity of pics in the last one, I have no doubt the standards will be just as high in this one!

My own modest first contribution:

The one that doesn't show up on the old thread! Dunham Massey 30.06.12 deers laying down.



wasp gathering in the nectar


Monster bee. Think it was about 5cm long.

Looks like a regular honeybee.

Quoting david_itl (Reply 1):
Monster bee.

A bumblebee, from the looks of it. 5cm would be monstrous, but they can normally reach about half that, which is already quite large for such an insect.

Nice pictures, though.

Thanks for that. Really pleased at how the deer photo came out.

Quoting Klaus (Reply 2):

This is the only photo I've got where a comparison can made - unfortunately, the big one is out of focus. Not sure how far apart the flowers were but that bee was a lot bigger than anything other insect that I saw

  It was one of those unfortunate situations when I had forgotten to bring my camera with me. However the view was too good to not be photographed, so the cameraphone had to do. I took 18 frames and the one uploaded was the best - unfortunately it seems to have a slightly pink/red tint.

LOL! If it is, I hope it's something interesting . . .

I think both of them just have some feathers stuck in their nostrils after some preening, but I could be wrong. And if you look again, they are actually swans. Any ornithologists on a.net care to comment?

Now why do they always remind me of the old SAA 747s?
