The Beauty of the Knapp

Last Sunday, I was at Knapp & Papermill Reserve for the monthly work party. A lovely hot day, it was perfect weather for photography so I snapped a few shots of the gorgeous green winged orchids. They are looking beautiful in Big Meadow at the moment so worth checking out if you have time! 

I also photographed a lovely bee buzzing around the alkanet at the picnic area and was pleased to discover, from the warden Fergus, that it was a tree bumblebee Bombus Hypnorum, a non-native that arrived in Worcestershire in 2008 and nests in trees. A nice spot and worth sending in to the records centre. 

Oh, and I did quite a lot of volunteer work whilst I was there as well. :)
