The bee was working on a deadline, busy collecting pollen in mid-September. Its colour is striking; among the most attractive of bees.
It’s a season of firsts. The other day I featured my first dragonfly photograph, today it’s a skipper. As I walked next to a field, I saw one, then several more of these butterflies. You rarely see a solitary skipper so you usually have several opportunities to take a photograph, always nice.
