[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It was great summer. Weather was rather mixed - many days with rain, but also lots of heat and sun. I walked almost daily in Lodz Botanic Garden and took tons of photos. This year was year of Diptera and Hymenoptera. I hunted for many species of wasps, bees, bumble bees, flies, etc. I learnt so much about their diversity and behaviour. As always I was very surprised by biodiversity and different shapes, colours and ways of small living creatures. I published many of my photos and observations on my website about Botanic Garden (botaniklodz.pl) and have no time for anything else :-) Maybe during short and dark days during autumn I'll send more of them on TN.

Today one example of what I photographed this summer - wild bee from Dasypoda genus.

By the way - I took so many photos that I broke my Tokina macro lens :-)

Kia ora Greg
What an awesome capture of this furry bee. Brilliant in colours and sharp details, and so good to see this photos of yours.
How are you? You must be getting ready for winter again. The weather is warming up down under and I am soooooo longing for summer
Best regards
