I set myself a challenge of photographing as many species of bumblebee as I could find in one day.
I trekked through fields, a former golf course, nature reserve and country park in Silverdale, and along a trail into Newcastle-under-Lyme town centre.
These are my thoughts and observations recorded along the way.
Can we do more to help our bumblebees? Where are they doing best? How many species did I manage to photograph?
