I can't say I was actually aiming to try to shoot bees whilst flying but most of these are ones where I was trying to photograph either a bee on a flower, or something else, and the bee took off or came into land just at the moment of taking the shot.
This is certainly the best of a bad bunch so I thought I would share here as hopefully this year I may have some better ones - I might even actually try to take a bee in flight on purpose!
(The reason for posting this now is because if you want real life reports on what's happening at Chateau Moorhen, it would be all about mud, rain and more mud, and I can't even take a photo of the mud because of the rain!)
