Is this a member of the buttercup family?
And a few beetles for any with good eyesight!

three insects

Does anyone have any pointers, even to genus level, of what these three might be? Taken in my garden in Surrey today.

What's going on here?

I found two clumps of tiny arthropods on a nettle leaf. I assume they must be spiders but am not sure. Can anyone give me any clues?

It doesn't really match E eligans in my book but I cannot find anything closer. The photos were taken today, 21st May on Hawthorn.
Thanks,

The best I can come up with are a) a soldier-fly such as Norellisoma spinimanum and b) a beetle such as Carabus nemoralis.
Does that ring bells with anyone?

'Bee 1'

I'm still struggling with my bumblebees - and they aren't enjoying this cooler weather. If anyone can bear it, I'll post some pix of 'bee 1' - with the threat of more to follow! Photos taken 10th May.

Bush?

Could someone tell me what this flowering shrub is, please? It is popular with bumblebees, and has rather foxglove like flowers.

Bombus hortorum?

This bee was on a bush in our garden. I don't know what the bush is but the flowers are rather foxglove like.
I am tentatively IDing it (the bee) as B hortorum. Any views?
