Bees and ants

The red mason bees are still busy nesting in the 'bee hotel'
Activity is not high as several bees are nesting at the same time and coming and going are frequent.

The pollen on the underside of the abdomen and occasionally you can see a bee carry a mouthful of  mud to construct the cells.

The black ants in our garden are also busy, but in a different way as they colect food and clean up the remains of dead invertebrates.
These ants are cutting up the dead remains of this damselfly
