I spotted this bee (and quite a few of its companions!) at the Queen Elizabeth Hall Roof Garden in London. The garden is a delightful spot, beside the River Thames but removed from the bustle below. Bees face such threats these days so I was pleased to see so many of them here, apparently thriving. I’ll do a post on the garden when I’ve finished editing the photos, but I’m quite proud of this bee so thought I’d share it now. 🙂
update: By coincidence, a few hours after I posted this photo I watched an episode of “Hidden Britain by Drone” which featured the honeybee hives atop Fortnum & Mason in London. According to the program, London has the highest concentration of honeybees in the country, and bees can fly up to 5km for food. I wonder where ‘my’ bees’ hive was?
