Waking up again
Now spring has finally arrived, its time to look for insects again. The first butterflies have been seen already and soon the first fresh dragonflies will emerge from the water. For the third year in a row, mining bees are the first insects I try to capture. These little bees make holes in the ground and are found in sandy soils. I had a look a few weeks ago, but no bees could be found then. Today I had more luck, the first bees were flying around. They were not very active yet, flying around a little, but didn’t do much with their holes. This made it harder for me to get nice shots, because they don’t have fixed places they return to. This individual was cleaning his hole, but was too busy to come out of it.
