We have some talented photographers on here I have lots of self seeded marjoram plants and the bees love the flowers.

Watch out for the Gatekeeper butterfly in July, they also love marjoram flowers

Thank you. I am still playing around with the settings on my camera and trying to get the hang of it.

This is a great time of year for bees.

Thanks, John, but they aren't that good. I still haven't worked out how to get a fast shutter speed and have it in focus at the same time, which is a bit of a bind. These pictures were more luck than judgement.

Second picture is fantastic, it certainly takes a lot of practice when taking pics of wildlife with these mini computer cameras, as I now call them. I agree, it is more luck than judgement when taking a pic, in my case certainly
