All about Insects 2018

Since the arrival of the new forum (November 2018), could all users of this thread please only reply to this post or the last couple of posts, as your comments could be buried & never see the light of day! LOL

This is the link to last years thread https://ww2.rspb.org.uk/community/wildlife/f/13609/p/193745/1156439.aspx#1156439

There aren't many insects around at the moment apart from the Harlequin ladybirds which keep coming the house. Although a couple of days ago I saw a bee & 2 flies on a dandelion flower. Who has got the first insect photos for 2018 then. That's a challenge!

This is a Southern Green Shield bug shield bug from 18th december, I only seem to see them at this time of year, it came to the moth trap

Look forward to seeing all your photos.

Best wishes
