A walk in nature

In these times of lockdown the simple pleasures of a walk (no more than 2km of your home if you are in Ireland), still the mind.

It allows us time to refocus, time away from the chore of working from home.

It allows us time away from the constant noise of children at home. So you can enjoy the bird song and buzz of the bees by yourself.

It allows us time to connect to Mother Nature, to enjoy her beauty.

It allows us time to fill our lungs with fresh air and to enjoy the smell of spring.

The simplicity of a walk in nature, bring us peace.

    Yes, it’s the power of simplicity alright brought to life again through your pictures. The grey mining bee is exquisite – my first ‘viewing’. Are they rare?

      There are not many records for Mayo, but it may just be under recorded. More records for east of country. Not sure of it’s UK status. Will have to check

    The first time I have seen a grey mining bee. Beautiful. A beautiful spring series, with words so true. Walks in nature bring me peace every day. I have to go out to stay sane.

      Your welcome – I have just checked it’s UK distribution and it is found throughout England and Wales (also occurs in Scotland but not widespread) but you call it the Ashy Mining Bee there.
