A few from local parks at the weekend. A fresh-faced Chiffchaff (yes, I am sure it is as I also have a photo showing the wing in detail) just barely glimpsed through a gap in a bush.
A rude bee caught sticking it's tongue out. You can't tell from this photo but I reckon it's probably a Gypsy Cuckoo Bumblebee
I think this is the first white that has posed for me this year - a shocking state of affairs - it's a Green-veined White.
You'd think this disreputable character had spent enough time in the bath, wouldn't you?
"No, I'm going in again!"
The paths are back to winter mud, which I suppose is good for Froglets - at least I think it's a Froglet and not a Toadlet
A Silver Y hiding in the vegetation
One of the drone flies, I think Eristalis Nemorum
This Red-legged Shieldbug was parked on a holly bush in the darkest spot, but a bit of flash made it pop
Nice collection of photos. Re amphibian, it is a toadlet. Still waiting for the local toads, and frogs for that matter, to find the pond I dug 8 years ago.
