Cuckoo Bee visiting Saxifrage. Has no pollen baskets as it need not store food - other species of Bumble Bee are parasitised.

White Horse of Kilburn near Sutton Bank in East Yorkshire. We went to find it on Sunday. You can walk up and across the top of it.
You can see it with a telescope on a good day from near the Ovenden Wind Farm.
It's about 45 miles away, North-east.
