Our plum tree is in full blossom at last and there was a constant variety of visitors to it this morning, including several species of bees and butterflies, and a solitary bee-fly, Bombus major.

This fella is a Red Mason bee, I think - Osmia rufa. I've applied a little artistic license to the photo as the lens is not really meant for this lark :D

Edit: Is that another bee mostly hidden on the other side of the flower?

The first honey bee I've spotted this year.

A friend has started bee keeping and I "volunteered" to help get a swarm from the tree..
