Bumblebees

 Despite a national decline in the numbers of bees there seems to be no shortage in our garden.
We think these Bumblebees are Buff-Tailed.  There seemed to be many other types although they are difficult to identify as the busily buzz around!
They all seem to love these Globe Thistles or Echinops in our border.
Bumblebees often nest in the ground, you can find out more here.
