Hopefully I'm not treading on anyone's toes, or duplicating a thread, but a trawl through the archives hasn't revealed to me a 2020 thread, so here goes.
For those who want to look back, here is last years; "All about Insects 2019" thread.
I've seen a few bees and hover flies around the garden but none until yesterday were posing for photos, so here's a start, a red tail bumblebee feeding well on some garden weeds.

The weed I've manged to ID as Green Alknet, but I'm happy to be corrected if I'm wrong.

WendyBartter said:Hi Mike, there is a new thread here ... community.rspb.org.uk/.../all-about-insects-2020 Can you transfer your post for us to see on there?
Many thanks Wendy for the correction, I've now reposted a slightly edited version.
Any one else who wants to post about insects, please use the correct thread on the following link: All about Insects 2020
