On Sunday afternoon I spent a few minutes in the Wildlife Garden with the camera but have only just got round to looking at the pics...
Amazing what you can find under your nose in a tea break... why not try the same thing at home or even at work if you have a green space?
A well laden Solitary Bee...
A male Solitary Bee...
A Cheilosia species of hoverfly - I think I know which one but they are very difficult!
A lovely big Bluebottle. I think it is a Calliphora
A Lucilia Greenbottle
Green Shieldbugs making more...
A Velvet Mite - a spider relative
An Orb spiderling ball
A member of Anthyomyiidae - out on a limb here
A tiny Jumping Spider that I think is Sibianor aurocinctus - a scarce Thames Corridor brownfield site species
And I will leave you with the wondrously named.... Pleasing Fungus Beetle.... Triplax aenea
oh and the Spoonbill was still present today!
