New queen bumblebees

Yes, it’s that time of year again. I have seen new queens for three species so far, common carders, white tailed and buff-tailed. They look amazing, so fresh and flawless.

About Murtagh's Meadow

As an ecologist I have always had an interest in nature. I love gardening and would spend all day outdoors if I could. I also enjoy taking photographs and writing. I live in the west of Ireland with my young family.
