Crocus crocus everywhere

The safari went out early to get photos of the Crocuses round the corner from Base Camp. A tiny few of the million bulbs planted. In between these bright yellow patches are thousands of Daffodils, which this year are late so won't be ravaged by children picking them for Mothering Sunday next weekend.
Looking east...
Looking west...

Having planted all those I still can't recall actually having seen an insect visit them, nor Daffs come to think of it - have you?
Back at Base Camp we saw what appeared to be a crab's claw lodged in the liner of the pond, either dropped by a gull or popped out of the back end of a gull. But no on closer inspection by Extreme Photographer, Raf, it turned out to be the leg of a pale Frog. Next too it, hidden in the folds of the butyl was another - whoopy - two Frogs - could mean spawn and taddies if the fish don't get there first!
Where to next? Off to the footy in a mo. SEA - SEA-SEASIDERS --- SEA-SEA-SEASIDERS
In the meantime let us know what's popped up unexpectedly in your outback.

I can recall a large bumble bee inside a Daffodil trumpet Dave.
