Bees!

I was watching loads of bees on a fragrant plant while I was waiting for someone yesterday. There were at least 4 different types, most of them were about half an inch long, some smaller but there was one bee that was HUGE - he was very dark in colour and at least an inch long and bumbled along quite happily climbing from flower to flower  - he was fun to watch Now I will have to find out what he was

Most of the 'little' ones were the white tailed bee (bombus lucorum) but I haven't identified the chunky chap yet
