Bumble Bee - Just 17 species of bee inhabit the UK. and only 6 of these are common. Many species have shown a marked decline in recent years.

Hemlock - Conium maculatum

Common ragwort - Senecio jacobaea

It's cooler in the shade, Mother Mallard with chick.

Comma - Polygonia c-album

The Cygnets are getter rather large.

Getting to grips with my new macro lens, it's not easy.

Great Crested Grebe with Juvenile.

Red Admiral - Vanessa atlanta
Due to the wettest June in the UK since records began in 1910, I've hardly seen any butterflies this year.

Creeping Thistle - Cirsium arvense
