SIZE SMALL

I had a quick look at Carmi's writteninc Blog before I went out with the dog, took my camera with me, but it was too windy to find anything small on the flowers or in the park!    However, a couple of months ago I was tracking bees and other insects round the plants on our patio, so here are some results!



The bees loved my Echinaceas, which I grew in a big pot.   They have been trqansplanted to the garden now, so I hgope they flourish just as well!


Another bee, another echinacea.




Different sort of bee on a helenium.   "Thunder" tells me its a bee fly - disguised to look like a bee, but has only two wings.   He's good at info like that!   Thanks, Thunder!




I know I've posted this before, but you can't get much smaller than this tiny micro moth, the wings are about 4 or 5 mm long!




And I hope you are not eating your breakfast as you see this!   This snail was methodically climbing up my pink lobelia and munching all the flowers, leave, the lot!   I am not fond of snails!

Go to the link above and see what others have found of a small size!

The snail is a great shot - although I do admit to putting out bait to kill the blimmin' things!
I love the bees, especially the beautiful fat bumblebee.

Love your fuzzy bumblebees.

By the way, that 3rd on the helenium is a bee fly. It gets protection by looking like a bee, but it has no stinger. And unlike the bee, the bee fly has only two wings.
