A break in the storms










It stopped raining for an hour or two this afternoon, and we had the joy of being able to see our own shadows for a short time, whilst the sun was out. The insects were quick to enjoy the break in the storms of recent days, stocking up with nectar after 48 hours of rain.

I often wonder where insects hang out during periods of heavy rain. Perhaps there are communal areas where they all sit wing to wing till the sun comes out!

Its been a real relief today not to have any rain, though my garden is just so sodden, its impossible really to do any clearing up - hopefully the weather will improve soon

Gorgeous flowers with the insects taking the opportunity to have a feast while the sun is shining. Great observation.
