Butterflies, Bees and Wildflowers : Summer Lovin’


This week the Weekly Photo Challenge is looking for our take on Summer Lovin’, and what better than going back to nature.   At the weekend I went cliff walking at Ballycotton, in County Cork, and was happy to see the bumble bees being busy collecting honey from the wildflowers, while the butterflies were their airy fairy selves, flitting from flower to flower.    With all the bad news recently about bees declining in number, seeing lots of them around our coastline, was definitely a good sign of summer loving.

    I’ve only heard of Ballycotton because of the big road race they hold there every year, but there’s clearly more to it.
    Here in Jersey the bees were having a bad time but I hear the beekeepers are much happier this year, maybe a result of the good summer.

    Most definitely that’s what summer is about in nature.
