Local man Andrew Clifton captured this beautiful close-up picture of a honey bee on a poppy flower over the weekend.

Andrew, who works as a landscape gardener, said: “I took the picture in my back garden.”

Wild bees are in decline and the Woodland Trust is encouraging people to plant more wildflowers in their gardens to help sustain the bee population. The Trust is also urging people not use pesticides, which kill bees and other pollinators.
