Two bees, or not two bees?
A large bee spotted outside the Mairie's office. There are some really inventive displays around Geneva which are changed out with the seasons. I particularly like the planting displays on the roundabouts - a life size tractor made out of plants and flowers was one I saw recently but I couldn't stop anywhere near to take the photo!
It was only after looking at the photos that I could see the length of it's proboscis. It's curled in the top photo and here I could see why it appeared to be hovering so far away from the flowers. There are tons more buds on the plant so hopefully it will be a regular visitor in our garden.
