Yours is indeed Allium Nigrum and not the same as Paul's ;)

That's a relief! Thanks for that.  :)

Found on an english nature reserve (rye, east sussex) probably easy but I have no idea! and the bug?

I am a complete novice so don't take my word for it, but it's not simply cow parsley, is it?

I would appreciate help with information concerning this rabbit. The photo was taken in May at an outdoor market in Bayeux, France. My best educated guess as to breed, after a long Internet search, is Champagne d'Argent/Argenté de Champagne, but I know nothing about rabbits. There were other rabbits nearby with similar size bodies and head-shapes, but they were all white. Perhaps this one is a younger version. (Also, could someone please remind me how I could have inserted a smaller size photo!)

Thanks very much, Philippe.

 

By the way, from the rough appearance of the owner, and the way he gently, but firmly, shoved the rabbit back into the basket with his foot, I gathered the rabbits were not being sold as pets.

Although I can't see the leaves I'll stick my neck out and agree with Phillipe that it's Daucus carota, wild carrot or Queen Anne's lace.  The beetle is definitely the orange soldier beetle, Rhagonycha fulva.  This one:

At the edge of a field of potatoes in Suffolk yesterday, buzzing with bees. 

 

Small pea like pods.

I have trouble identifying invoices - they often get mistaken for waste paper.;)

Any help identifying this flower and bee would be appreciated. I took a number of photos in a formal garden in East Lothian, Scotland, this week but no identifying name for this one. Pic below is not mine but is similar.

The flower is Cephalaria gigantea, giant scabious.  We'll need a link to your own photo to ID the bumble bee.

Hard to tell but could bee (geddit!) Bombus sylvestris which is found in Scotland.

Another one eludes me.  Presume its the same bee (same garden) as the one above. But have spent ages googling the flowers with no joy.  Help much appreciated.

Hard to tell what the flowers are, could be some sort of Salvia.

 

As for the bee, could be Bombus lucorum, Bombus terrestris or Bombus soroeensis!

My first hunch was Catnip: Nepeta with the saturation up high.

Probably Nepeta grandiflora or variety of - though I don't know of one with such red calyces (the bud leaves).  Did you turn up the saturation?

 Thanks for the suggestions. I will do some research or might go back to the Castle garden and see if I can find out. No, saturation a notch up only if I remember, but not at home at present to check. I do try to avoid that.

 If you have a cat, bring him/her along. He/she will tell you right away whether it's Nepeta. Prrrr!
