There's this cute Bee and a bloomin' Kittiwake tries to steal the limelight.
That is just perfect.

Time we resurrected this thread …………….. today's double photobomb
I can only recognise the Ringlet butterfly and not sure what the other two are ?

Cheers Nige, seconds later when a small skipper joined in and threw the Ringlet out of focus lol
In reply to HAZY:
Nigel beat me to the one on the left, the one in the centre looks very much like two, one carrying it lunch, which could be a mayfly or something broad-bodied
Pure chance of getting the two so clearly, definitely not intentional, I was photographing the banded when what might be a common blue flies in on the scene

If those Volucella hoverflies aren't bombing then they are being bombed
In fact, all hoverflies seem to like getting in on the act and even bomb each other. In this case, Eristalis Intricarius is being bombed by one of the drone flies
