These were part of the "charm" is it of goldies that whizzed in this morning
There were about 50 of them, couldn't get them all in shot, but a Jackdaw and then Magpie came and scared them away.
Mr Gigantic again, along with it's mate visits most days now and I'm getting obsessed with them, they seem to sleep under the Sedum blossom at night
Lovely Red Admiral
Another strange bee, this one with white wings
All on one blossom, the white bee, two honey bees and the Copper butterfly
Landed next to me, what a cracker
Mr G and Copper
OK OKay I'm going
Just flew in so had to take them
Four having a party on the lovely Sedum!!! :-)
Good to have the sunshine making it all possible.
Lot to learn

Lovely photos Gaynor.
Around late September, the red admirals become quite prominent here, so I'm hoping.
On a side note, I know it's a Thursday, I've a days pass out and with the weather looking good, I'm off to Conwy, with a divert to Llanwryst to hopefully photo the famous tearoom in its red glory.
