J'aime ce genre de photos avec les abeilles qui butinent

Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ray.
Great shot of this lovely little bee in the lovely flowers!
Tom Wilson: The bees seem to be more numerous during the lockdown!
Super shot Tom...
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Frank - the only one of several that I managed to catch the bee!

Well captured Tom, the plant looks like an orchid..
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Chris - yes the blooms are orchid like, but it I don't think it is an orchid - I'm trying to identify it. I found an app for the phone called PlantSnap, which identifies plants from the pictures you take - it identifies the flower as Purple Toadflax - and when I check other sources that seems right.

The bee is really getting stuck in, Tom
Tom Wilson: It is indeed - and I was happy to see it!
He's getting stuck in Tom.
Tom Wilson: You and Lisl are on the same track, Bill smile

He's found some nectar. Curling up with pleasure.
Tom Wilson: She was buzzing around this plant for some time - this is the only shot that got her anywhere near in focus!

Getting involved with nectar!
Tom Wilson: Drinking its fill smile
What an excellent shot, Tom! Pretty as a picture. ????
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Care - the opportunistic result of having the phone in my shirt pocket smile
We were watching the Bees at work in our garden yesterday, before the rain!
Tom Wilson: I don't think there was a "before the rain" here yesterday, Brian - it was raining when I got up in the morning until I went to bed!
They are a delight to watch, Tom!
