Helmet Vanga, endemic to Madagascar (Title Photo)

Dear Readers, just a few people had a bash at the quiz this week, and very well they did too – Claire got 19 out of 30, but the winners this week are Fran and Bobby Freelove with 26 out of 30! I should point out in all fairness that the lovely Mangrove Hummingbird in the third photo is actually endemic to Costa Rica, not Colombia, but I’ve given you full marks because Costa Rica wasn’t listed as an option, and Colombia makes perfect sense under the circumstances. 

Did you know that 20th May was National Bumblebee Day? That might be a clue to tomorrow’s quiz….
