Bleeding hearts

I took over 500 photos of flowers, yesterday, which sets me a fairly daunting task when it comes to sorting through them. So in the meantime, have some pictures of bleeding hearts from May.

Yesterday I spent an hour and a half in a friend’s yard, taking pictures of tulips. I think it was worth it. More pictures will follow over the next days!

Pink and gold

We found the most amazing poppies walking today.

The bug is not a bee or wasp, but a hoverfly (family Syrphidae); beyond that identification I won’t venture. They feed on nectar and pollen. And you can see the wee bits of pollen dust all over the petal behind it.
