I've been camping in Norfolk for a few days and a few of the pictures I've taken don't really match anything in "Complete British Wildlife". Can anyone help identify them?

sorry, I can't be of much help :( but the pictures of the bee and the flower are really lovely.

Thanks so much for sharing it with us.

Hi John. Not sure, but the petals look a little like those of wild geraniums. Google wild geranium images and take a look. Good luck!

By the way, the photos are great and you've captured those bees nicely!

The bees are so chubby! Nicely taken :)

What a beautiful shot. It looks like bumble bee and a very big one. :)

Hi again, John, and DUH!

After re-reading your title, I realized you were trying to identify your bees, not your flowers! So sorry. Anyways, here's a link that I found interesting. A very detailed guide to identifying bees as well as other nature...

I don't know what kind of bee that is. My husband did bee keeping for years, but this one looks like honey bee coloring to me but more of a bumble bee body.

Looks like all those beekeepers mailing queens around the world have been causing lots of local ecosystem problems there, as well as here in Oz.
