Wou'ja look at the pollen baskets on that

The Safari had an hour to kill before the footy started so we tried to get some pics of the bees outside the front door here at Base Camp. The bush is one of the Ceanothus species and it just reeks of honey...the bees simply love it - it is covered in them.
The top two pics are White Tailed Bumble Bee, the others are all Red Tailed Bumble Bee.

Tricky little Sheilas cos they just won't keep still!

Where to next? Deffo off round to our mates to watch the footy on the world's biggest telly. Hope they take a leaf out of Portugals book and score a netful. Alternatively Rooney et al could always do a Maradonna, Henri or Luis Fabiano if the ball isn't finding the net often enough ie cheat! Apologies to any Slovenian readers but this is football - no offence meant.

In the meantime will we be able to stand the nerves?

Hi Monika - the telly is HUGE. Send you moth over I'll have a go hoping it will be one with a holarctic distribution and is found in the faunally challenged british Isles. I'll do this even though the world's best footballing nation has been beaten in to SECOND place by WHO???
