Garden Life....And Death

Once again I've been gardening, and I had to take a photo of this tiny Dolichopodidae fly on a newly opened lily. It's a metallic green one. I think those flies are so cute!

And here was what I thought was a dying Bumblebee Drone from a couple days ago. Bumble Bees don't mate until Autumn, so I'm not sure if this may have been a victim of the Cuckoo Bumble Bee which invades nests of legitimate Bumble Bees. This one had surely been through a fight by the look of its damaged wings.
