Flower watching


I recently spent 45 minutes watching some coltsfoot flowers to see what insects visited, on a sunny March lunch time. I was hoping for bumblebees but they bumbled on by. What I did see was two hover flies and a dung fly.
It is getting warmer this week . I hope I can take the time to watch another site.
