More Bee Orchids

Another visit to some of the local ponds while down south  they are getting vagrant Moths and Dragonflies ,here for me I still can't find anything other than damselflies.

This was just on a post I have turned it around 

More Bee Orchids perhaps it is a good year for them

 This one showing the pollen that is supposed to detach and adhere to the bee which carries it too another flower ,the stalk then droops and pollinates the flower
 Not sure what this one is
 Common Blues out in good numbers

 5 Spot Burnet Moth on Melilot
