Relieved to know it is harmless to humans, Jacksparrow. Brave to get so close to a scabious :D !

I was hacking away at some summer foliage when I heard a sound I usually expect to hear in the spring on one of the first warm days of the year. The unmistakable drone of a Bumblebee :jawdrop:
At first I couldn't see it but finally just caught a glimpse of it disappearing under my holly tree. A Queen White Tailed I think. Definitely a big one. :nod:

Ah, that's a shame. Hope she finds warm quarters very soon. Amazing spot, Jacksparrow :yes:
